To maximize your day on our campus we recommend signing up for an Engineering Information Session and an Engineering Campus Tour.
To begin, please see our calendar for dates and times.
Engineering Information Sessions
These hour-long Engineering Information Sessions have the same content as the standard Information Session but with an engineering focus. The admissions officer will lead you through the inner-workings of Tufts, and along the way you’ll learn about our socially-conscious engineers and the broader community that makes up our School of Engineering. The last portion of the Engineering Information Session will focus on the admissions process, but the admissions officer will spill the details about how to go about the admissions process to engineering-specific programs. Engineering Information Sessions are offered at 2:00pm on Fridays on 2/22, 3/29, 4/5 and 4/26.
Engineering Campus Tours
Current Engineering students lead prospective students and families around campus for the Engineering Campus Tour. These tours are offered at 3:00pm following the Engineering Information Sessions on the following Fridays: 2/22, 3/29, 4/5 and 4/26. While you’ll hear about all aspects of the Tufts community, your tour guide will bring their unique engineering experience, stories, and sense of humor on the 70-minute tour. The tour guide will discuss such topics as classes, research opportunities, student life, and the shiny new engineering facilities and maker spaces (maybe inspiring your next project along the way!). If you are unable to register for an Engineering Campus Tour, engineering will also be covered in the General Campus Tour. We request that you please do not sign up for both a General and Engineering Campus Tour.
Introduction to Tufts Engineering with Facilities Tours
An admission officer will give you a quick 45-minute glimpse into the world of engineering at Tufts before you are whisked away on a 40-minute tour of our facilities by a current Tufts engineer. See engineering in action and discover what you can tinker, create, and collaborate here at Tufts. This introduction and facilities tour will be offered at 9:00am on Mondays (and one Wednesday) on these dates: 2/18, 2/20, 3/25, 4/1, 4/8, 4/15 and 4/22 . We also encourage you to see the rest of campus by signing up for a general campus tour after the engineering facilities tour.
Engineering Open Houses
In the fall, Tufts welcomes prospective students to campus for one of several Engineering Open Houses. Registration and more information is available at this link.
