The International Engineering Program (IEP) at the University of Rhode Island is the nation's most distinctive plan for global preparation of engineers. In the IEP you earn two degrees simultaneously: a B.S. in engineering and a B.A. in German, French, Spanish, Chinese, or Italian.
The IEP student studies a foreign language and culture each semester along with an engineering curriculum. In the fourth year of the five-year program the student goes abroad. The first semester is spent taking language, culture, and engineering courses in the host language, and the second semester you intern with a reputable engineering firm.
Because of the rapid expansion of global business, IEP graduates are in high demand. The program boasts close to a 100% job placement rate within six months after graduation.
