Engineering combines mathematics and scientific principles to solve real-world problems. Everything we use in our daily lives has been influenced by engineers: cars, bridges, airplanes, computers, televisions, and smartphones.
Within the broad field of engineering, there are a wide variety of disciplines that focus on different aspects of the engineering. At UMass Boston, we currently offer degrees in two engineering specialties: electrical engineering and computer engineering.
We also offer a range of courses in civil engineering or mechanical engineering, the opportunity to learn in a Freshman Success Community, work on research alongside esteemed faculty, and intern in the Boston area.
