The Brown School of Engineering recognizes the mutual benefit of close relationships with industry, and actively encourages students and faculty to participate in these relationships. Through the Corporate Affiliates Board, the School creates a plan and implements these activities. We welcome new interactions: Please contact Associate Dean Rob Rome (Robert_Rome@brown.edu) for more information about how you can get involved.
The Brown School of Engineering provides an opportunity for industry to build upon and expand into more innovative and forward-thinking approaches: Work with our students, and you will see the advantages.
Brown is fundamentally different in the way it educates its engineers. Blending strong core science and cutting-edge training with Brown’s distinctive liberal arts curriculum creates something special: “Renaissance Engineers” capable of applying their engineering knowledge in creative and innovative ways.
Today’s economy requires something more than a purely traditional engineering education, if we wish to remain competitive in the world market. Minds that can think outside of traditional boundaries to create new, novel solutions to problems are essential to industrial development and growth.
The School of Engineering’s Corporate Affiliates Program (ECAP) provides various opportunities for industrial partners to gain access to the wealth of intellectual potential our students offer.
