Welcome to Engineering at Rice where students go on to do great things like start their own companies, lead major energy firms, become venture capitalists and leaders in engineering education. They work for NGOs in conflict areas and in labs that study major diseases. They are intellectual property lawyers, musicians, and makers of musical instruments. And what do they have in common? They all use approaches to problem solving, knowledge of engineering fundamentals and the desire to make the world a better place, in whatever field they practice.
Engineering at Rice is challenging, exciting, and it can be life changing.
