The School of Engineering (SoE) at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, was founded in 1914 as the College of Engineering. It was originally a part of the Rutgers Scientific School, which was founded in 1864 [http://www.physics.rutgers.edu/dept/history/robbins/chapt04.pdf Chapter Four: Rutgers Scientific School (1859-1880).] (PDF) Retrieved on September 23, 2008] . The school has seven academic departments, with a combined undergraduate student enrollment of over 2,400 students [http://oirap.rutgers.edu/instchar/factpdf/enroll07.pdf Headcount Enrollment by Campus, Full-Time/Part-Time Status, and Academic Level, Fall 2007.] (PDF). Office of Institutional Research and Academic Planning. Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. Retrieved on September 23, 2008.] . It offers over 25 academic and professional degree programs. These include several interdisciplinary programs, such as Bioenvironmental Engineering and Bioresource Engineering with the Department of Environmental Science, and the graduate program in Mechanics.

Departments and programs

The Rutgers School of Engineering is composed primarily of seven academic departments. All of the degree programs offered are certified by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology.

In addition, the School also has undergraduate programs in Applied Sciences and in Bioenvironmental Engineering [http://envsci.rutgers.edu/programs/bioeng_ug.shtml Undergraduate Program in Bioenvironmental Engineering.] Department of Environmental Sciences. Accessed on September 23, 2008.] , and also a graduate program in Mechanics [http://www.mechanics.rutgers.edu Graduate Program in Mechanics.] Rutgers School of Engineering. Website accessed on September 24, 2008.] . Students who chose to pursue a degree in Applied Sciences also have to option to select a concentration in Packaging Engineering, Engineering Physics, Biomedical Science, or Premed [http://coewww.rutgers.edu/oaa/applied_sciences.php Applied Sciences web page.] Office of Academic Affairs. Rutgers School of Engineering. Accessed on September 23, 2008.] .

Degrees offered

The school offers the Bachelor of Science (B.S.), Master of Science (M.S.), and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees. Graduate students are technically enrolled in the Graduate School-New Brunswick, and not directly in the School of Engineering. For this reason, all graduate degrees are awarded to a student by the Graduate School-New Brunswick on successful completion of one or more of the degree programs listed below.
* Applied Sciences - B.S.
* Bioenvironmental Engineering - B.S.
* Bioresource Engineering - M.S.
* Biomedical Engineering - B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
* Chemical and Biochemical Engineering - B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
* Civil and Environmental Engineering - B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
* Electrical and Computer Engineering - B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
* Industrial and Systems Engineering - B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
* Materials Science and Engineering - B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
* Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering - B.S., M.S., Ph.D.
* Mechanics - M.S., Ph.D.

The SoE also offers a 5 year B.S./M.B.A. program in conjunction with the Rutgers Business School. Students who opt for this program are, however, required to meet certain GPA and GMAT score requirements, and are required to apply to the program in the Spring semester of their Junior year [http://coewww.rutgers.edu/oaa/bs_mba.php BS/BA - 5 Year Program.] Office of Academic Affairs, Rutgers School of Engineering. Retrieved on September 23, 2008.] .

A combined M.S. and Diploma Course is also offered by the School of Engineering and the von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics, Belgium [http://mechanical.rutgers.edu/joint_prog/index.html Combined Master of Science - Diploma Course.] ] Web page hosted by the Rutgers Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering. Accessed on September 23, 2008.] .

Research centers

The Rutgers School of Engineering is home to several research centers, and is also affiliated with other research centers throughout Rutgers University. These large-scale research centers are typically funded through various New Jersey and federal grants, and also through corporate sponsorships. Also, numerous smaller research laboratories exist within the various academic departments of the SoE.

Student organizations

The School of Engineering has a student governing organization, the Engineering Governing Council (EGC). The EGC functions as a liaison between students and member of the faculty, distributes funds to the various engineering academic societies active within the SoE, and generally represents the students of the SoE in the Rutgers University Community [http://www.egc.rutgers.edu/ Website of the Engineering Governing Council (EGC).] Rutgers School of Engineering. Accessed on September 23, 2008.] .

Several national and international student and professional engineering organizations also have branches or chapters at the Rutgers School of Engineering. The ones that are recognized by the EGC are [http://www.egc.rutgers.edu/societies/societyList.php Recognized Societies.] Website of the Engineering Governing Council.
