Future Students

You love taking things apart and putting them back together.
You dream of space and its endless possibilities.
You want to solve real-life problems for people
who need your ingenuity to save lives.

Engage your curiosity.

Check out our Undergraduate Programs page to search majors and departments by keywords, career choices, and interests.

Our Undergraduate Programs page has information specifically for transfer students and competitive major requirements.


For future students, there’s nothing like walking up the big staircase in the Scott Building, asking questions during a live tour with an engineering ambassador, or talking with current students about their engineering projects.

Staircase, Suzanne and Walter Scott, Jr. Bioengineering Building

Our Custom Visit Day tours and events will give you a better understanding of the admissions process, our location, academic programs, and student life at Colorado State. Engage with current engineering students and ask questions about their CSU experience.

Follow along with us as our Engineering Student Ambassador team explores the buildings, labs, and classrooms in the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering.

Engineering Exploration Week 2020

Join us!

Offered for free each year, the College invites high school students, their parents, and community members to explore engineering majors and careers.

In case you missed them, we recorded sessions from previous Engineering Exploration Week sessions. Get information about majors, student life, education abroad, and more.

E-Days Senior Design Showcase

Engineering Days

Although this is not a traditional visit day, the E-Days design showcase features outstanding opportunities across disciplines to interact with undergraduate students and their projects.

Our Student Ambassadors

Our student ambassadors live the engineering life every day, and are the perfect people to answer questions about the engineering experience. The ambassadors give tours of our buildings, offer advice to future students, and are available for any questions about the College.
