Exploring Engineering Majors

Guide and resources to explore engineering

Students enter college in a variety of places on what major they want to pursue. Many students arrive knowing exactly what they want to and then they take a class and realize they have narrowed their interests. Other students come in with a general idea and they go to a seminar and hear someone from industry speak and leave knowing they have found their passion. Other students come in sure that they want to save the environment, but they aren’t sure what major will get them there. Wherever you fall on the “declaring a major” spectrum, this guide is meant provide direction and resources for researching and exploring engineering. One tip as you get started: begin with the end in mind. Don’t focus as much on your major as on what you want to do. Research to find out which majors will get you there – because there are typically multiple majors.
