Brown University School of Engineering

Alumni and Friends

The Brown School of Engineering eagerly welcomes the involvement of alumni, who offer a wealth of experience and insight to our students and faculty. Opportunities for involvement are many and varied.

Help Us Connect Students with Corporate Experiences

Brown Engineering often has requests from engineering students, both undergraduate and graduate, for outside contacts for possible internships, both paid and unpaid, and summer work opportunities. Brown Engineering students are highly motivated, well-grounded in engineering science, highly analytical and organized, and very creative. In addition to engineering experiences, many students are also interested in start-up companies, business, consulting, law, finance, venture and angel financing, and banking. Their quantitative training in engineering and rich liberal arts exposure serves them well in these professions.

Entrepreneurship Opportunities

  • Program in Innovation Management and Entreprenuership (PRIME)
  • Business, Entrepreneurship, and Organizations (BEO) Program - capstone projects for engineering
  • Entrepreneurship Program (EP) - (student organization) - projects and programming for engineering
  • Blended entrepreneurship (technical/social impact) opportunities with other campus constituencies 

Corporate Affiliates Program

Our goal is to develop a data bank of possible opportunities for our students and faculty. If you wish to be part of Brown Engineering’s data bank, please email Associate Dean Jennifer Casasanto at  Jennifer_Casasanto@brown.edu with your company name, company contact information (website, address, phone, fax, and email), and a short blurb on your company and the opportunities available.
