Prospective Undergraduate Students

Engineers are creative problem solvers who inspire change and impact tomorrow by designing and producing products and services that benefit people. They apply mathematical and scientific principles to find solutions to the greatest challenges facing our society.

The homes we live in, the cars we drive, the highways we navigate, the technology we rely upon, the healthcare we need — they all need engineering to make them happen.

With a broad range of majors, the College of Engineering encourages students to work across disciplines to develop and innovative solutions to improve life across the world.

Such a wide variety of choices ensures that first and second-year Penn State engineering students receive an inclusive foundation before they enter their chosen major. Once in the major, coursework is facilitated to foster a deeply collaborative understanding of engineering that students carry through their degree and into the workforce.

Engineering at Penn State helps you go beyond what is currently known, opening up a world of limitless possibilities for you.
