The future is engineered here.
Grove engineers are applying innovative solutions to the greatest challenges of our times. Whether you are just beginning your undergraduate career or finishing up your doctorate, at the Grove School of Engineering you will work with world-renown engineering mentors on cutting edge research—no surprise, as Grove faculty oversee 15 research institutes in fields that range from energy and sustainability, nanotechnology, and materials engineering to transportation and remote sensing. These institutes and other labs provide an unmatched training ground for City Engineers in the making.
Long the most popular area chosen by our undergraduates, engineering at City offers students a full compliment of degrees—BE, BS, ME, MS, MIS, and PhD—in a broad range of fields. They also have the opportunity to work with world-class mentors in advanced research laboratories.
Grove supports its students through professional development, student clubs that compete on a regional and national level, and study abroad opportunities that range from our Engineers Without Borders, whose students built a clean water system in El Salvador over several summers, to our membership in the U.S. Global Engineering Education Exchange, which will enable our students to spend a semester or a year at a foreign university.
