However, prospective students are able to attend the Office of Admission's Green and White days where academic information, including an engineering presentation, is given. The program is available in late July. Please be sure to RSVP for this program.

Presentations are shown to give a brief overview of the College of Engineering's programs and to offer a good place for questions and answers. Please check in 15 minutes prior to the presentation in room 3540 Engineering Building. The presentation will start promptly at 3:30pm (or 10:00am for certain occasions) with the tour following immediately after. The Presentation and Tour lasts from 1 hour to 1.5 hours.
