Engineering Undeclared

About the Program

The Engineering Undeclared program allows students to explore academic options and stay on track with credits and critical courses within the College of Engineering before declaring a major. With the help of an advisor, students can select courses based on their unique interests and goals. By the end of the second quarter, students select an engineering major and are guided toward a future career path.

The Engineering Undeclared program empowers students to make well-informed decisions around choosing their engineering major, getting involved on campus, and following their ambitions. Note that this program does not lead to a degree in engineering - all students must change their major into one of the College's degree programs.
