Undergraduate Program | Explore and Apply to a Major


“Take advantage of the free classes you have in your schedule during your first year, and use them to try new things. That way, when the time comes to decide your major in the spring, you will be fully prepared.” - First Year Engineer, Class of 2017

Utilize Introduction to Engineering
“Pay close attention to the ENGR 1620 course content as it is very informative and is a good introduction to the engineering disciplines. Also, participate as much as you can in ENGR 1620 as it gives you a good taste of engineering group work.” - First Year Engineer, Class of 2017

Go to Major Night in the Fall
“To all rising SEAS first years, it’s okay to lack an idea of which major you are interested in until this point. However, make sure you attend as many major nights as possible, as they will give you a clear overview and details of each engineering concentration.” - First Year Engineer, Class of 2017.
