Concentration Options

Students have the freedom to pursue many optional programs and paths in addition to the engineering concentration. From choosing to pursue a professional track, study abroad, honors, or the engaged scholars program, options abound to make the Brown engineering experience your own.

The Engaged Scholars Program allows students to apply their engineering knowledge toward addressing societal issues in partnership with external organizations.
Based on their academic performance up to the end of the junior year, students may apply for admission to the Honors Program.

Independent Study courses are created by students who work with a faculty member to explore a topic of mutual interest.

Students must complete two full-time professional experiences, lasting two to four months each (or two part-time experiences of equivalent total effort), doing work that is related to their concentration program.
The global nature of the engineering profession makes a study abroad program particularly attractive.
