When you arrive, you’ll enter as a general engineering major and take many courses with other first-year engineering students. During that period, your professors and advisors will help you choose the engineering program that’s best for you.
Some of you may know what major you wish to declare at orientation, while others might be considering different options. (You can’t be expected to have all of the answers before you’ve taken one class!) Your interests and experience will reveal the most rewarding academic and career path.
If you want to explore disciplines beyond engineering, you can talk to your advisors about minors, double majors, and interdisciplinary work. As of fall 2018, close to 15% of engineering students had declared a minor.
