Visit Purdue Engineering

Whether you're planning a visit to Purdue's campus or looking for virtual event opportunities, you've come to the right place! There are a variety of in-person and virtual events and information sessions offered throughout the year, hosted by the Office of Future Engineers and other engineering programs on campus.

View the currently planned opportunities below, and check back often as we regularly add more resources as they become available!

Campus Visit Opportunities

Engineering Information Sessions
Weekdays at 11:30 a.m. Eastern

Led by current undergraduate engineering students and/or staff, our Engineering Information Session (EIS) is an hour-long presentation that will provide an overview of the majors and programs here in the College of Engineering. You'll learn about opportunities for student life, research, work experience, study abroad, and more!

Following the end of the presentation, there may* be an optional Engineering Facilities Tour led by students from the Purdue Student Engineering Foundation. This approximately 45-minute tour will highlight some labs and classrooms across a few of our engineering buildings and leave from the presentation room with no registration required.

*Engineering Facilities Tours are offered subject to the availability of our tour guides, who are all student volunteers and therefore may not be available every day. Tours are unable to be offered when classes are not in session, including most days during the summer.

Register for an Engineering Info Session

Also planning a Daily Visit campus tour through the Office of Admissions? We recommend registering for the 8:30 a.m. or 1:30 p.m. sessions if available, as they line up perfectly with our 11:30 a.m. Engineering Information Session.

Registered for Introducing Purdue? You do not need to register for the Engineering Information Session or the Admissions Daily Visit tour - both are already included as part of the Introducing Purdue agenda.

PROMISE, sponsored by the Minority Engineering Program, is an exciting two-day event that encourages high school seniors from underrepresented communities to apply to Purdue. This agenda includes campus tours, residential hall tours, engaging meals with faculty and students, engineering projects, exposure to the engineering curriculum, and social activities.

In the morning, pick two academic information sessions you want to attend — ask questions and get the real scoop from current students and representatives from our colleges and schools.

In the afternoon, enjoy lunch on your own and then you and your family can decide what to do next! You can choose to tour all of campus or just the facilities you really want to see, learn more about specific majors, or check out our cultural centers or recreation center.

The day is yours to customize, no separate registrations required!

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!

The Minority Engineering Program (MEP) at Purdue University was initiated in 1974 as one of several initiatives to improve diversity and inclusion in the College of Engineering.

MEP offers programs, camps, and outreach initiatives at the K-12 level to encourage interest in the field of engineering as a whole, boost college preparation and readiness, and promote a diverse field of engineers around the world. They also support current Purdue Engineering students through programs, mentorship, and alumni networking.

The Minority Engineering Program is open to all students of all races, genders, and backgrounds.
