The Engineering Program at the University of Massachusetts Boston offers several options for students wishing to major in this field. In civil, electrical, industrial and mechanical engineering, students complete the first two years of their degree at UMass Boston. After successful completion of the sophomore year, they apply to one of the cooperating institutions for admission to the junior year of its engineering program. Admission is guaranteed at the UMass Amherst, Dartmouth, and Lowell campuses. Our faculty hold doctoral degrees from such schools as Johns Hopkins University and Cornell University and are distinguished scholars and scientists. They publish articles in leading journals, receive significant support from major funding agencies and provide expert consulting to private companies and public agencies. Students get research experiences by working with our faculty on research projects leading to presentations at local and International conferences. The Program has two teaching labs, one of which has been recently renovated with individual workstations in team seating arrangements, and state-of-the-art A/V equipment. As internship opportunities from local companies arise, they are made available on to our students.
