Engineering students have access to one of the newest engineering learning facilities in the state and have learning opportunities far beyond the classroom. As a result, students have access to resources that allow them to complete complex senior design projects and compete in national and international competitions.
Students are admitted to the School of Engineering after declaring their major. This can be done during their first semester if they have no English or Mathematics deficiencies.
Transfer students' transcripts are evaluated for general education requirements upon entry to SIUE. Once a student has declared an engineering major, the transcript is further evaluated by Engineering Student Services for engineering-specific courses.
