Visit Purdue Engineering

The Office of Future Engineers and Office of Admissions are dedicated to providing the best visit opportunities possible through a variety of on-campus visits throughout the year. When it comes to scheduling your exceptional in-person visit, we have a few suggestions for how to get the most out of your on-campus time.

Please note that space is limited, so pre-registration is required for the Engineering Information Sessions and all Admissions events. Also, all times indicated are in Eastern Time. Schedule accordingly and allow extra travel time when driving from surrounding states (especially when coming from the Chicago area). 

If you try to register for a date where events are full, please contact our office directly to determine how best to visit on that date. It might take additional scheduling on your part, but most of the time you can still visit and get the same information, just in a different format.

Dress comfortably and appropriately for the anticipated weather. Wear comfortable walking shoes.
