Visit Us/Attend Special Events
We hope you are able to experience for yourself the University of Washington Seattle campus. Described as a Collegiate Gothic oasis-in-the-city, campus is nestled between lakes, mountains, and forests and in the midst of the thriving city of Seattle.
Several events throughout the year offer opportunities for prospective students and families to learn more about engineering at the UW:
- Engineering Discovery Days
- This is a great time to visit the UW College of Engineering! Each April, on a Friday and Saturday, the UW Engineering opens its doors to the community and welcomes students, families, alumni, and partner organizations to campus to visit over 100 hands-on exhibits (appropriate for students grades 4-12), hosted by the 10 engineering departments.
On Saturday, departments offer information sessions targeted for high school and transfer students.
- Preview Days - For UW admitted students
- The UW Office of Admissions welcomes admitted students to campus during Preview Days. While most engineering departments are not able to accommodate individual appointments with prospective students, the College of Engineering participates in several resource fairs in March and April.
If you have been admitted, register early for UW Preview Days and be sure to stop by and visit us!
- Purple & Gold Experience
- The UW invites newly admitted students of color to learn about programs that promote success, interact with current UW students, and find out about academic majors, support services, and social/cultural happenings on campus. The College of Engineering is proud to participate and speak to prospective students during many of the resource fairs.
Visiting and learning more about engineering programs
Each engineering department has information for prospective students and its own in-house advisers available. Follow this links to find information session dates and contacts for undergraduate advisers. It's best to make an appointment in advance. In some departments, chances of being able to speak to an adviser without an appointment are slim.
