Rice Universityâ€™s George R. Brown School of Engineering is top-ranked for its education and research programs. The School of Engineering is a leader in computational science and engineering and simulation and modeling. With pioneering research in nanotechnology, Riceâ€™s School of Engineering has made significant contributions in bioengineering, materials science and energy. Its strengths in information technology include data science, high performance computing, compilers and digital signal processing.
The School of Engineering at Rice has a tradition of giving students a sound foundation in the fundamentals of engineering but today, those fundamentals must be augmented by experiential learning and "soft skills." Developing leadership and entrepreneurship skills and ensuring that all our students have internships improves our students' teamwork and communication skills, gives them real engineering experience, and for those who are entrepreneurially inclined, provides the knowledge and resources to turn ideas into startups.
Collaboration is the key to engineering research at Rice. Faculty members, graduate students, undergraduates and research scientists work with researchers from across campus, across the street in the Texas Medical Center, across town in the energy sector, and beyond, to tackle some of the most challenging problems of our times.
