About Applied Sciences Engineering

Know you want to be an engineer but you’re not wedded to a particular field? The Rutgers Applied Sciences in Engineering program may be just right for you!

Applied sciences in engineering is an individualized interdisciplinary program that is designed to fill a broad set of educational needs that are not covered by one of the nine other engineering majors at Rutgers. Possible concentrations include: packaging engineering, engineering physics, operations research, IT, and premed (note: a premed curriculum can be completed along with any other engineering major). Other fields may be included to meet your interests. You'll develop the last two years of the program with the assistance of a dean and relevant major departments. Applied Sciences in Engineering is not subject to professional accreditation.

In today's global marketplace working in an international environment is more and more common, particularly for engineers. A study abroad experience provides cultural and economic perspective, develops language and communication skills, builds real-world knowledge, and increases marketability in a global job market.
