A little about Kshitij: "These past couple of semesters has been witness to my active involvement in various aspects of Rutgers Engineering. I try to give back to my society as much as I can by being involved with various projects and helping others with their classes. A fruit of my labor confronted me when I was asked to represent my department during ABET accreditation in October. Also, I recently won ASME Foundation Scholarship, a global scholarship from American Society of Mechanical Engineers.

Oluwatoyosi Ipaye, a first-year student in Rutgers School of Engineering, is the university’s first participant in a pioneering program designed to engage the next generation of women engineers and scientists, specifically women from nations with a Muslim-majority population. The U.S. State Department, the New York Academy of Sciences and 38 universities nationwide are partnering in the project, dubbed the NeXXt Scholars Initiative. It is designed to counter a shortage of women in the STEM fields: science, technology, engineering and math.

In the world of engineering, there are few experiences as relevant or life-shaping as internships that take undergraduates outside of the classroom to work directly on real-world problems alongside industry mentors.   So with the goal of expanding such opportunities, the School of Engineering has launched a new scholarship program that encourages students to excel academically by compensating hard work and solid GPAs with enhanced access to both internships and industry mentors—in sectors ranging from energy to aerospace to financial services to health care.

We are pleased to report a series of exciting research developments that have yielded $56 million in research expenditures for the School of Engineering and the Computer Science Department. Rutgers’ longstanding expertise in ceramic engineering is being tapped by the military to develop body armor that better shields soldiers from modern-day battlefield threats – most notably from IEDs (improvised explosive devices).  The Department of Materials Science and Engineering is part of a Johns Hopkins University-led research consortium that the U. S.
