Visiting Campus

Engineering Wednesdays

The College of Engineering holds "Engineering Wednesday" presentations and tours most Wednesdays year round starting from the Visitor's Center. This "mini" open house for prospective undergraduate engineering students and their families is an engineering-specific information session followed by a tour of the College of Engineering led by one of our students. It is an opportunity to learn about our academic programs, cooperative education, support services, and the admissions process. It’s also a great time to see our facilities, meet other faculty and staff, and get your questions answered.

Wednesdays 11:00 AM in Admissions Visitor Center (West Village F). The program will last approximately two and a half hours. It is highly recommended that attendees also register for the Explore Northeastern session which includes a short general information session and general campus tour.  To register, visit our Admissions website and select "College Specific programs."

Women In Engineering Day
Women in Engineering Day is an all-day event for high school girls and their parents to find out more about our program. The day starts out with a welcome Continental breakfast, several information presentations, and a student panel of engineering women ready to answer all of your questions. Over lunch, meet our Admissions, Financial Aid, and Residential Life staff. The afternoon includes visits to our engineering research facilities with lots of informative activities; and the day ends with an optional campus tour. Typically WIE Day is held twice a year (in the Fall and in the Spring). For more information or to reserve a spot in the fall program (date tbd – typically a Friday in October), please e-mail Rachelle Reisberg at r.reisberg@neu.edu.

Building Bridges
A day for high school freshmen, sophomores, and juniors to learn what engineering is all about.

"Building Bridges" days are typically held in November/December and in April/May annually. For more information, please visit STEM Building Bridges.
