School of Engineering Tours

The School of Engineering (SoE) hosts department tours for prospective students and their families to provide an in-depth overview of the engineering departments and curricula. Department tours run during the spring and fall semesters (typically during February-April and October-November) and take place on select Fridays. In addition, general SoE tours are available during the summer months.
