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 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 currently does not allow us to accept visitors or offer tours. After the 2020-2021 school year, please check back to see when we are restarting our student-led tours of the engineering school and offering opportunities to sit in on classes. By then we also hope you can attend an Office of Admission information session and an Orange Key tour of the campus, in addition to taking our engineering tour.
