This is part of our series profiling different graduate degree programs and graduate schools at U.S. universities for international students on an F1 Visa or J1 Visa. This week we profile the School of Engineering at Rutgers University.
For international students looking to study engineering, Rutgers University’s School of Engineering could be an option to consider. Rutgers University is a world leader in dynamic research and problem solving and fosters a diverse community of determined scholars.
Having three campuses spread out through the state of New Jersey, all of Rutgers University’s locations are less than an hour away from New York City.
- For prospective F1 Visa and J1 Visa students, degrees gained through the undergraduate and graduate departments can be put to immediate use upon graduation as New York is a global hub for job opportunities.
A member of the Big Ten Academic Alliance, Rutgers University stands out in all its academic departments, especially the School of Engineering. Annual expenditures dedicated towards research over all areas total over $400 million, with a substantial amount going towards engineering research specifically.
- As the Rutgers University’s School of Engineering website explains, there are a diverse number of research topics at the university: “With nearly $70 million in research expenditures in 2017 and 150 faculty members engaging in research—from the fundamental to the applied—on a broad range of topics that impact society, the nation, and the global community, the School of Engineering is a dynamic and academically supportive environment for pursuing graduate studies.”
The School of Engineering offers Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and doctoral degrees in several departments.
The following departments offer graduate programs and can be contacted directly to obtain information:
- Chemical and Biochemical
- Civil and Environmental
- Electrical and Computer
- Industrial and Systems
- Materials Science and Engineering
- Mechanical and Aerospcae
Industry focused graduate degree programs:
