Visit Penn State Engineering

A great way to decide if Penn State Engineering is right for you is to visit us! Choose from an engineering-specific visit or connect with us during one of the university-wide events below. You can sign up for these programs, as available, on the Penn State Admissions website.  

College of Engineering Prospective Student Visits (PSV)

Hosted by the College of Engineering at University Park during the fall and spring semesters, these visits are customized to your interests and include an engineering facilities tour led by a current student tour guide from the ESTAR (Engineering Student Tours and Resources) student group. Upon registration, prospective students will have the opportunity to select sessions led by our undergraduate majors, minors, and more.   

Please note, the College of Engineering is unable to accommodate individual visits. The schedule for our PSVs will be updated in August for the fall semester and early December for the spring semester. To register for these visits, please visit the event calendar.
