College of Engineering
The First-Year Engineering Program is the entry point for all freshman engineering students at Purdue. The program allows students to ease into college life and get grounded in the fundamentals of engineering through a common first-year curriculum. First-Year Engineering has top-caliber advisors, faculty, and staff who care about student success and choosing which of our engineering majors is the right fit. Upon successful completion of First-Year Engineering, students transition to their major in one of the Engineering schools beginning the Fall Semester of their second year.
