We’re hearing from many of you that you want to study engineering!  But when we ask you what kind of engineering you’re interested in, we often see shoulders shrug.  There are SO many areas of engineering to explore that sometimes it is difficult to know what exactly it is you want to pursue!  And that’s ok – you have PLENTY of time to check out your options.  Even after you enter your engineering program you will have lots of flexibility as you decide which specializations or concentrations to choose!
However, it’s always a good idea to know what you want because you will work harder to get there!  Therefore, we’ve put together a small list of some of the types of engineering that you can pursue.  Check out the links below to explore a sampling different program and research options – some programs even offer a combined BS/MS in 5 years!

There are over 4,000 universities in the U.S., and many of them will offer high-quality, accredited engineering programs.  As you prepare to study engineering in the U.S., keep in mind the following:

  • Maintain your grades – especially in Math and Science!
  • Try to be involved with engineering-related projects outside of school.  Science fairs, invention competitions, etc.  Or, take time on your own to research areas of interest!
  • Take the SAT! Most students with your interests do well on the math portion, so make sure you remember to study for critical reading and writing!  Although some universities don’t require the SAT for admission, most of them will require an SAT score for admission into the school/college of engineering.
  • Depending on the university, you may need to take the SAT Subject tests in math and/or science.  Be prepared to take these if necessary!
