Admitted Student Events for Engineering

Congratulations on your admission to the School of Engineering!

All of our Admitted Events have passed. We hope you can join us for Rutgers Day on Saturday, April 29, 2017. Many of our departments and student organizations will be participating. Click on New Brunswick - Busch Campus - Engineering Area. No pre-registration required.


Register with one of the links below for the Admitted Student Event of your choice. Sign-ups are first come, first serve so make sure to reserve your spot as soon as possible. Please note, students are allowed only 1 guest due to limited spaces. We look forward to seeing you at one of our Admitted Student Events!

General Admitted Student Event

Women in Engineering

Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering

General Schedule (2/3, 2/17 & 3/24)

At an Admitted Student Event you can expect to meet current students and professors to discuss their experiences at Rutgers as well as take a tour of a specific department. The itinerary will also include presentations from Undergraduate Admissions, the School of Engineering and a student panel. Afterwards, you will have three options to choose from:

Civil and Environmental Engineering

Civil engineers design and create virtually all infrastructure, from bridges and highways to airports and sewage treatment facilities. Within civil engineering, there can a be a wide range of specialization and attendees will hear about the curricula and tour research labs to gain insight into what is available to them as a Rutgers student.

There is also an optional viewing of a first-year dorm at the end of the program.

Electrical and Computer Engineering

Electrical and computer engineers work in a rapidly developing field that encompasses computer systems and software engineering, information processing and systems, and nanotechnology. This program provides students with expertise in a wide range of areas and attendees will hear about the curricula and see student demos and research labs to gain insight into what is available to them as a Rutgers student.

There is also an optional viewing of a first-year dorm at the end of the program.

Hot Topic in Engineering

Featuring the following departments: Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Industrial and Systems Engineering, and Packaging Engineering

  • February 3 - Engineering & Medicine
  • February 17 - Engineering & Business
  • March 24 - Engineering & Careers in Industry

Students will tour a first-year dorm and then participate in a discussion of the hot topic in engineering with professors from each of the departments listed above. Afterwards, they can choose to hear from and visit one of the departments featured in the hot topic panel.

Women in Engineering Schedule (3/3)

The Admitted Student Day on March 3, 2017 will only be for women who have been accepted into the School of Engineering. This is a full day immersion for visiting students and will incorporate many components of a general Admitted Student Event.

On this day you can also expect to meet faculty and students to discuss their experiences at Rutgers and experience firsthand the supportive community of female engineers that is unique to Rutgers. More in-depth than the other general Admitted Student Events, the program also includes lab demos and research poster displays by faculty and undergraduates. Attendees will have the chance to meet members of various engineering student organizations and hear from alumni who have been through it all.

Mechanical & Aerospace Schedule (2/13 & 3/27)

These two Admitted Student Days are specifically for students who are interested in mechanical or aerospace engineering and will not feature any other departments.

As one of the broadest fields in engineering, mechanical & aerospace engineering extends into a wide range of industries including robotics, energy generation, and naval development. Our students acquire basic principles in design, analysis, and modeling while building core knowledge in fluids, thermal and structures.

Attendees will hear from Undergraduate Admissions, mechanical & aerospace faculty and students as well as view lab demonstrations. There will also be a five campus bus tour.

Admitted Student Webinar

If you are not able to make it to any of the Admitted Student Events, please join us for an online question and answer session with current School of Engineering students, first-year dean, and admissions staff. As a student admitted to this school, we invite you to learn more about the opportunities available to you.

Date: March 7, 2017
Time: 7 p.m. - 8 p.m. U.S. Eastern Time
How to join: Email invitation will be sent out in February
