Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Through participation in the FSAE Car Project within the School of Engineering, students conceive, design, and build a small, formula-style racing car for bi-annual entry in the Formula SAE competition. The design is to be based on engineering principles and quantitative methodologies. This popular project provides students with a realistic experience in design, teamwork and leadership.

Brown Building Society (BBS) is an organization dedicated to facilitating and promoting undergraduate extracurricular building projects. BBS organizes a variety of group building projects of varying complexity and duration. These projects involve a broad range of disciplines and interests.

Brown Space Engineering Team (BSE) group is designing and building a nano satellite that will be launched as part of a NASA initiative. The satellite, called EQUiSat, is being constructed by undergraduate engineering students utilizing a modest budget and only off-the-shelf products. Once launched, EQUiSat will emit a flashing ray of light visible by the naked eye from urban areas, and transmit a stream of information audible by any HAM radio user.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Engineering programs at Brown University are integrated into a single organizational unit, the School of Engineering. This structure encourages collaboration and the spawning of new ideas by softening the traditional boundaries between the various engineering disciplines. Since many of the most exciting research problems today are interdisciplinary in nature, the structure at Brown offers distinct advantages. In all Sc.B. programs at Brown, students are exposed to and acquire a basic knowledge of the full range of fundamental engineering disciplines, including biomedical, chemical, civil, computer, electrical, fluids, materials and mechanical engineering.

Please visit Brown's Web site for detailed information: http://www.brown.edu/admission/undergraduate/apply-brown/transfer-applicants

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

To be eligible for transfer application you must have completed at least one full year of college study (or its equivalent) before your planned matriculation at Brown. Both part- and full-time students at accredited two- and four-year colleges may seek transfer admission consideration. Because Brown requires degree candidates to complete a minimum of two years in residence and in full-time study, students with more than two years of college credit are discouraged from making transfer application. Students who are currently enrolled in a dual program or an early admission plan should contact the admission office before submitting an application.

Dual Degrees

Undergraduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

Sc.B./Sc.M Degree: Engineering undergraduates with high academic standing may enter an integrated program leading to the award of a Master of Science degree after an additional year of study beyond that required for the Bachelor of Science degree.

Sc.B./A.B. Degree: Students who wish to combine the study of engineering with study in the arts, humanities or social sciences can arrange a five-year program leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in engineering and a Bachelor of Arts degree in a non-technical field.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Matriculants are required to hold a baccalaureate degree or its equivalent by the time they matriculate in the Graduate School. Admission to Brown graduate programs is highly competitive and only those applicants whose previous records, test scores, and recommendations give clear evidence of their ability to do advanced work of the highest quality will be admitted. The suitability of an applicant's training and interests is also an influential criterion in determining which applicants shall be admitted.
REQUIREMENTS for Sc.M.: Eight courses including Mathematical Methods of Engineering and Physics (ENGN2010, 2020 or their equivalent), thesis and non-thesis option.
REQUIREMENTS for Ph.D.: Preliminary examination, dissertation and oral defense.
POSTAL ADDRESS: School of Engineering, Box D, Brown University, Providence, RI 02912 E-MAIL ADDRESS: jennifer_casasanto@brown.edu BROWN UNIVERSITY WEB SITE:http://www.brown.edu/academics/gradschool/
BROWN ENGINEERING WEB SITE: http://brown.edu/academics/engineering/graduate-study

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Please see admissions information under School of Engineering.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

All international applicants whose native language is not English must submit an official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score. An applicant's TOEFL score must be 577, or 90 on the internet-based exam. Those taking the IELTS must achieve a minimum overall band score of 7. Three letters of recommendation; transcripts; personal statement; GRE.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as resident students

Residency Requirements

Brown requires that degree candidates complete a minimum of two years in residence and in full-time study.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Three letters of recommendation; transcripts; personal statement; TOEFL (if applicable) 577 (pbt)/90 (ibt); GRE.

Financial Aid Information

Required financial aid forms

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), Federal Tax Return Forms (IRS), Other College Board forms

Additional Financial Aid Information

Students admitted to the Ph.D. program are offered financial support, either in the form of a fellowship or a research assistantship. Some students are admitted without financial aid, but they are usually admitted to the Masters Degree Program only. International students who are not awarded financial assistance will not be granted final admission until they provide certified proof of financial support (including travel to and from the U.S.) adequate to meet annual expenses. In addition, the US Government will usually not issue a visa to a foreign student who does not have proof that they can support themselves financially.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
