School of Engineering Tours

The School of Engineering (SoE) hosts campus tours for prospective students and their families. Campus tours run during the spring and fall semesters (typically during February-April and October-November) and take place on mostly Fridays. In addition, general SoE tours are available during the summer months. Students who are exploring their college options, but have not yet applied or been admitted to the Rutgers School of Engineering, will benefit from attending a Campus Engineering tour. These tours will focus more on the admissions criteria, the application process, and an overview of SoE. 

Spring Tour Dates

In compliance with the University's response to COVID-19, beginning Thursday, March 12, Rutgers events and in-person meetings involving groups larger than 15 participants are cancelled through May 31.
