The field of engineering is diverse with areas of specialization that are unique and specific to particular industries. Some fields are more well-known than others, like mechanical, civil, and electrical engineering. And others like materials science and industrial and systems engineering might be less familiar.
At Rutgers, we let you explore all 10 engineering majors before asking you to decide on the right fit for you. Our Introduction to Engineering course features presentations by faculty members and demonstrations, giving students the opportunity to explore fields of engineering that may be new to them or not as widely known.
Students are also exposed to research opportunities, career possibilities, and coursework that will challenge and engage them. Students can also find ways to create interdisciplinary programs through research or coursework.
