First-Year Engineering Program
The School of Engineering Education's First-Year Engineering Program is the entry point for all beginning engineering students. The mission of this student-oriented service program is to recruit, advise, teach, and retain outstanding students for Purdue's College of Engineering.
All engineering students at Purdue must complete the First-Year Engineering requirements before entering the engineering school of their choice. This core curriculum includes courses in math, chemistry, physics, computer programming, and communication skills, as well as introductory engineering coursework taught in the new Ideas to Innovation (i2i) Learning Laboratory.
The First-Year Engineering Program provides students with a firm foundation and initial understanding of engineering and career options to assist them in identifying which of Purdue's engineering disciplines is the right fit. Our professional academic advisors, faculty, and student advisors are dedicated to assisting beginning engineers with the first-year experience.
