Engineers are hardworking and driven. They seek to improve the world. At UMass Amherst, we empower our engineering students to realize their ambitions and to propel change.


World-class research

Here strong minds challenge the ordinary with ideas that are bigger, bolder — game changing. From artificial neural networks and bio-inspired computing; to a new class of environmentally friendly polymer materials; to transformative water-treatment discoveries, our research is leading-edge and students have the opportunity to play a big part at lab bench, in the field, and with technology transfer and building start-ups.


Top-ranked and affordable programs

We offer a breadth of academic and experiential offerings. From hands-on design projects and undergrad research; to study abroad in such places as Australia, France, and Hong Kong; to innovation competitions; and tuition-free co-op opportunities — we prepare students to lead, innovate, and succeed. Within six months of commencement, more than 80 percent of our grads find engineering jobs or enter grad school. In the rankings, we shine when you compare our tuition and how we stack up to other area programs.
