Friday Schedule

At an Academic Admitted Student Tour 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 a presentation from the School of Engineering, a student panel and a 5-campus Bus Tour with Admissions. On each date, there will be a separate Honors Academy Admitted Student session with the Honors Dean and students. All admitted students can choose one of these five options when registering (please note available dates for each option). The day will start at the Visitors Center at 10:00 am.

Biomedical Engineering (Available on: 2/15, 3/8, 4/5)

Biomedical engineers design prostheses, artificial organs, and pharmaceutical products. They also advance the manufacturing of diagnostic and therapeutic devices and imaging equipment for the medical field. Undergraduate students in biomedical engineering have access to state-of-the-art labs and facilities, research opportunities and internships that compliment coursework and provide industry experience. Attendees will learn more about the curricula and hear from current faculty and students about the opportunities at Rutgers. 

Civil and Environmental Engineering (Available on: 2/22, 3/29, 4/19)

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. We will also cover the environmental engineering degree option. 

Electrical and Computer Engineering (Available on: 2/22, 3/29, 4/19)

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.

Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (Available on: 2/15, 3/8, 4/5)

As some 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 and attendees will hear about the curricula and tour research labs to gain insight into what is available to them as a Rutgers student.

Hot Topic in Engineering (Available on: 2/22, 3/29, 4/19)

Students will participate in a discussion of the hot topic with engineering professors from each of the departments listed below. Afterwards, they will visit one of the departments featured in the hot topic panel.

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

  • February 22 - Undergraduate Research & Innovation
  • March 29 - Engineering Experiential Education
  • April 19 - Engineering in the Health Industry

Women in Engineering Schedule (3/1)

The Admitted Student Day on March 1, 2019 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 observe 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, a faculty panel and a networking session with undergraduates. Attendees will have the chance to meet members of various engineering student organizations and hear from alumni who have been through it all.

Open House (4/13)

The School of Engineering will be participating in the Rutgers University Admitted Student Open House. If you are not able to make it to any of the events listed above, this is the final event for admitted students. You will get to visit various departments and see other University partners and student services across campus.
