Engineering (First Year)

The First-Year Engineering Program is the entry point for all first-year 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.
