Summer 2021Space is very limited due to COVID restrictions and are expected to fill quickly. If space is not available for you to join a tour, consider doing a Self Guided Tour of the Swearingen Center.
The College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) offers tours for prospective students. These general tours are led by current engineering or computing students. Tours last about an hour and provide a general overview of engineering and computing programs.
You will get a GENERAL overview tour around the College of Engineering and Computing (CEC) building(s) led by a current student. You will see some labs, but not all labs for all majors will be shown. We are not able to offer meetings with faculty members as part of the tour. If you would like to speak with a faculty member, or see specific department labs please attend a Big Friday.
- A high school age prospective student (and their family), generally interested in attending college for some type of engineering or computing program.
- A senior in high school or transfer student (and their family) that is unable to attend a Big Friday session.
- If you are an educator, and would like to bring a group of students for a tour please contact Stefanie Perrell directly to make arrangements.
Tours are generally offered on weekday afternoons throughout the year. Registration
for CEC tours should be made at least two weeks prior to the requested date. Upcoming tour dates and times:
Summer 2021 tours will be offered on Friday afternoons at 2pm (excluding August 13).
Fall 2021 daily tours will be Monday-Friday at 2pm beginning September 1.
