The Office of Future Engineers Welcome Center is open weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Visitors are welcome and encouraged to drop in during their visit to campus - no registration required! We have current students and full-time staff in our office who are happy to chat with you and answer any questions you may have!

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!

Want to learn more about a specific engineering major? Check out our Engineering Majors page!

Connect with a Purdue Engineering Alumni where you live!

PACER (PSEF Alumni Coordinated Engineering Recruitment) is a program designed for prospective students to connect with an alumni in their area. PACER is a great resource for students who still have questions about engineering and Purdue after a campus visit, or for students who don’t have the opportunity to visit campus. Please fill out the interest form if you want to be paired with an alumni – we will get back to you within one to two weeks!
