Engineering PREVIEW - April 6 and 7, 2017

Deadline to apply is March 30, 2017. To apply, click here.

Engineering Preview was launched in 1975 to encourage students who have received offers of admissions to choose Purdue. This is referred to as yield. The average yield of URMs in College of Engineering is 18%. Preview is a two-day program that gives participants an opportunity to meet and hear from current engineering students, faculty, and staff about their experiences and have their questions answered regarding life at Purdue. The yield for MEP Engineering Preview participants last year was on average 60%. Engineering Preview is provided at no cost to participants, except for their travel to and from campus.

University Collaboration

Office of Admissions: The admissions-based Destination Purdue program collaborates with MEP Preview by providing campus and cultural center tours, organizing additional student panels, and providing information and materials to assist with yielding students to Purdue. Division of Diversity and Inclusion (DDI): The DDI mirrors Engineering Preview through the campus-wide launch of OurPurdue. This event is a cross collaboration of all Multicultural and Minority Program Directors to invite admitted students from Indiana and Chicago for a two-day campus experience at no cost. Yield from this program last year was 75%. If you are unable to attend in February, we will host a series of online webinars with current students and staff to answer your questions about Purdue.
