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. However, the best advice we can give is to invite you to come and see for yourself. Please sign up for one of our student-led tours of the engineering school and also take advantage of opportunities to sit in on classes. While you are here, please be sure to attend an Office of Admission information session and an Orange Key tour of the campus, in addition to taking our engineering tour.
