Future Students

Engineering Exploration Week 2020

Calling all future Rams!
Virtual Engineering Exploration Week is coming October 19-24!

High school and transfer students can meet with student design teams, check out lab demonstrations, and learn about engineering careers during our free virtual Engineering Exploration Week.

It’s bigger than a major. It’s more than an engineering degree.

It’s late-night conversations about changing the world. It’s the set of experiences that turns a job into a lifetime of difference‑making.

Connect with engineering virtually!

Join us 4 p.m. every Monday and 3 p.m. every Friday for a College Information Session Webinar to learn more about specific academic programs, student life, enrichment opportunities, and more. 

One-on-one virtual meetings

Prospective students can schedule a 1-on-1 video chat with a current student from the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering! Appointments are available based on specific programs and majors. Register here.

Our engineering student ambassadors will guide you through an interactive virtual tour of our engineering facilities. Engage with current engineering students and ask questions about their CSU experience.


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

In order to facilitate a safe and healthy environment for the entire CSU community and our guests, all prospective student events scheduled for March 16-May 31 are canceled.  We will also be unable to accommodate visit requests during that time. For updates on Admissions events, please visit admissions.colostate.edu/covid19.

We're here to answer your questions!
