Summer 2019 INFORMATION SESSIONS + TOURS

Interested in experiencing all that engineering at UGA has to offer? Attend one of our Information Session + Tour events. These events involve a formal presentation from staff where prospective undergraduate students and families are able to learn about our curriculum, experiential learning opportunities, student groups and competitions, support for entrepreneurship and innovation, and much more. All information sessions are followed by an engineering facilities tour led by College of Engineering Student Ambassadors.

All information sessions begin at 2:00 p.m. in the Paul D. Coverdell Center Auditorium (map).
