First Year Undergraduate Students

Welcome to the College of Engineering!

We are excited that you are now a Badger Engineer! As a first year engineering student you are going to experience a lot of transition and we want to make sure you have the support you need in working through this transition and in meeting degree requirements in Engineering. We strongly encourage you to get in touch with your academic advisor if you have not already.


As a first year student, you will need to meet a set of requirements in order to progress in your engineering major (or switch to another).

Be sure to carefully review these progression requirements to understand what these are and how you can meet them. If you have questions after fully reviewing these requirements be sure to contact your academic advisor.

There are ways to get involved that you may have never imagined!
