Visit Us

Following the Purdue University guidelines for visitors, the Office of Future Engineers (OFE) has transitioned all of our operations online.
While we have no on-campus events scheduled, there are still many ways to connect with us in real-time through virtual opportunities.

We know that campus visits are a large part of the college search process, and we can't wait until the day we can welcome you to our campus again. In the meantime, know that we are doing everything we can to bring our campus to you and answer any questions you have. Below you will find all of our upcoming virtual events and other online resources to learn more about Purdue Engineering and our programs. You are also invited to contact us any time!

Feel free to bookmark this page and refer to it often, as we will update it regularly with new information and events as they become available.

Friday Drop-Ins
Fridays from 3-5 p.m. Eastern

Want to chat with the students and staff of Purdue Engineering beyond just an email or phone call? Join us for Friday Drop-Ins every Friday afternoon on Zoom!

Purdue Engineering Admitted Student Days
Replays of live sessions

Purdue Engineering Admitted Student Days was a virtual, three-day exploration of all of the majors available to our undergraduate students. Over the course of these three days, we hosted presentations from every major within the College of Engineering, as well as sessions about our First-Year Engineering program and its various pathways, a faculty panel discussing the College's approach to engineering academics, and more!

While the event may be over, admitted students can still watch the replays of each session! Click the link below to go to the Replays page!

Connect with Current Students in PSEF

Would you like to learn about Purdue from a student's perspective? Reach out to a member of the Purdue Student Engineering Foundation (PSEF). These are current undergraduate engineering students studying at Purdue from across the United States and around the world. Check out their profiles to learn about their experiences, and then reach out to one of them using their contact form. They can be a direct resource for you as questions arise about being an engineering student. PSEFers love being Boilermakers but will also “tell it like it is,” as they want you to see the whole picture here and help you find the best college fit no matter where that may be!

Other Resources

Purdue Engineering Virtual Experience

The most comprehensive resource our office has ever built, the Purdue Engineering Virtual Experience is a self-guided, virtual tour of virtually every aspect of Purdue Engineering! A series of virtual 'stops' each highlight a specific topic and allow the viewer to spend as much or as little exploring that topic before moving on to the next stop. Think of it as a 'choose your own adventure' Purdue Engineering encyclopedia!

As we often say, one of the best ways to learn about a university is through its current students, so we've included over 5 hours of video content created by our students so that you can see our campus through their eyes and hear about their experiences.

We have even more plans for the Virtual Experience, including additional photo, video, and interactive tours of various Purdue Engineering labs, classrooms, and facilities that will be added over the upcoming weeks. As we add new content and features, we'll be sure to make announcements on our social media feeds.

Women in Engineering Program | Virtual Info Sessions & Live Chats

The Women in Engineering Program (WIEP) at Purdue is hosting a series of live, virtual events for prospective students featuring information on all that the Purdue Women in Engineering Program has to offer you as a student, and spending time answering your specific questions! Current engineering students in the program with experiences in a variety of disciplines and activities across campus will be on hand to share their insights with you and your parents. Sessions offer one-on-one conversations, providing you with a chance to ask your specific questions to female students who are active members of campus life.
