Academics & Advising
Discover Engineering: Introductory Seminars
These courses and seminars allow students to find out more about engineering and about specific majors within the College of Engineering. Many of these options are one or two credits and are seminars which do not require homework or exams, so they can easily be taken in addition to a regular full-time course load.
