Because of our unique structure and approach to engineering, for example, the lack of formal boundaries between engineering disciplines, our research is highly interdisciplinary and often includes connections to other departments on campus outside of the School.
In keeping with our interdisciplinary nature, the School of Engineering has no traditional departments and Brown does not award degrees based by specific research area.
Areas of Study
- Biomedical Engineering
- Chemical and Biochemical Engineering
- Electrical Sciences and Computer Engineering
- Fluids and Thermal Sciences
- Materials Science
- Mechanics of Solids
- Program in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship (PRIME) (Master's only)
