For everyone’s health and safety, the School of Engineering and Applied Science is unable to offer engineering tours – neither indoors nor outdoors – to prospective students and their families until further notice. We strongly encourage you to review Princeton University’s visitor policy before traveling to campus.
Thank you for considering to apply 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. Ordinarily, we would add that coming to see for yourself is even better than anything we could say here. We are saddened that the coronavirus pandemic does not yet allow us to accept visitors or offer tours. We hope to restart tours in the 2021-2022 academic year. Please check back late-fall for further information. In the meantime, please email us with questions.
