The College of Engineering at Boston University is a community of students, faculty, and staff focused on advancing science and technology through research and discovery, and preparing students to be technology leaders in the 21st century. Undergraduate students participate in a comprehensive core curriculum that sets the foundation for their engineering studies while delivering a breadth of education across the humanities, mathematics, and social and natural sciences. Through an array of majors and concentrations, they can study aerospace, biomedical, computer, electrical, manufacturing or mechanical engineering, as well as nanotechnology, and energy technologies and environmental engineering. They also have the opportunity work side-by-side with research faculty in a number of modern, high-tech facilities. Graduate students partake in myriad programs and research opportunities leading to doctoral or master’s degrees in biomedical, computer, computer systems, electrical, manufacturing, mechanical, global manufacturing, photonics, systems, or materials science and engineering.
