Biomedical Engineering (available Fridays, April 10 or April 17)

Biomedical engineers design prostheses, artificial organs, and pharmaceutical products. They also advance the manufacturing of diagnostic and therapeutic devices and imaging equipment for the medical field. Undergraduate students in biomedical engineering have access to state-of-the-art labs and facilities, research opportunities and internships that compliment coursework and provide industry experience. Attendees will learn more about the curricula and hear from current faculty and students about the opportunities at Rutgers. 

Chemical and Biochemical Engineering (available Fridays, April 17 or April 24

Chemical engineers apply principles of chemistry, biology, and physics in a wide range of fields including alternative energy, waste management, pharmaceuticals, agriculture and food products, and consumer goods. Within chemical engineering, there can be a wide range of spcialization and attendees will hear about the curricula and hear from current faculty to gain insight into what is available to them as a Rutgers student.  

Civil Engineering (available Fridays, April 17 or April 24)

Civil engineers design and create virtually all infrastructure, from bridges and highways to airports and sewage treatment facilities. Within civil engineering, there can a be a wide range of specialization and attendees will hear about the curricula and tour research labs to gain insight into what is available to them as a Rutgers student. 

Environmental Engineering (available Fridays, April 17 or April 24)

Environmental engineers utilize engineering principles and physical, chemical, and biological sciences to devise effective solutions for current and emerging environmental problems related to human activities. Environmental engineers protect and improve societal health through air pollution prevention and control; safe drinking water production and supply; sustainable treatment of wastewater and solid wastes; and remediation of contaminated sites, along with many other local and global environmental issues. 

Electrical and Computer Engineering (available Fridays, April 10 or April 17

Electrical and computer engineers work in a rapidly developing field that encompasses computer systems and software engineering, information processing and systems, and nanotechnology. This program provides students with expertise in a wide range of areas and attendees will hear about the curricula and see student demos and research labs to gain insight into what is available to them as a Rutgers student.

Industrial and Systems Engineering (available Fridays, April 10 and April 24)

Industrial and systems engineers devise ways to make products and services better, safer, easier to use, less expensive, and more energy efficient It combines the physical and social sciences together with engineerng principles to improve complex problems and deliver solutions. Attendees will learn more about the curricula and hear from current faculty and students about the opportunities at Rutgers. 

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (available Fridays, April 10 and April 24)

As some of the broadest fields in engineering, mechanical and aerospace engineering extends into a wide range of industries including robotics, energy generation, and naval development. Our students acquire basic principles in design, analysis, and modeling and attendees will hear about the curricula and tour research labs to gain insight into what is available to them as a Rutgers student.
