We would enjoy meeting you and having the opportunity to share with you the engaging learning experience that you can receive only at the University of Rhode Island College of Engineering.
We offer four ways to visit, each tailored to create the best campus experience. We don’t want you to be disappointed, so please review our offerings below and note that not all events include the opportunity to meet department chairs, faculty, or students.
