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.
