Engineering tour guides are now live-streaming interactive engineering tours for prospective students. See below for details. A reminder that the School of Engineering and Applied Science is not yet offering in-person tours, neither indoors nor outdoors. We strongly encourage you to review Princeton University’s visitor policy before traveling to campus.

Thank you for considering applying for admission to Princeton University and your interest in engineering.

Reflecting Princeton’s integrated approach to education and its close-knit community that spans engineering and the liberal arts, all undergraduate admissions are handled through the University’s central Office of Admission. Applicants indicate their interest in engineering and express their intention to pursue the Bachelor of Science in Engineering (B.S.E.) degree, but there are ample opportunities to transfer between degree programs. Students may pursue the B.S.E. in the departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Operations Research and Financial Engineering. The Department of Computer Science offers both the B.S.E. and the liberal arts (A.B.) degrees.

We have many great things to say about Princeton Engineering as a launching place for your dreams and for making a positive difference in the world – and you can find a few succinct reasons why in our FAQ.


Virtual Guided Engineering Tours

Engineering tour guides will live stream an interactive engineering tour through a Zoom webinar. Prospective undergraduate students are welcome to ask questions and have them answered live. During the academic year, our guides are members of the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society, who are juniors and seniors who are able to describe their experiences as engineering students at Princeton while providing an overview of the academic programs and facilities. Virtual engineering tours are offered on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons for the remainder of the spring semester. They will promptly begin at 4:30 p.m. and will last about an hour.

During the summer, virtual engineering tours are offered at 3pm on Wednesday afternoon’s in July, given by students who are spending their summers at Princeton doing research. 

Registration information and our available tour dates are online here. Advanced registration is required.
