Academic Opportunities

Penn Engineering offers a number of academic opportunities for undergraduate students.

Global Opportunities

Experience in an international setting is an opportunity that Penn Engineering strongly encourages students to obtain.  Spending time in another country allows students to develop their intercultural abilities, and increase their independence and confidence as they immerse themselves in a new environment -- all while fulfilling their major requirements.  Students can study abroad for a semester or a year, take part in a Global Service Learning project, enroll in a Global Immersion Course, or complete a summer internship.

Opportunities include:

  • Study Abroad
  • Global Service Learning
  • Global Immersion

Research Opportunities

Our extraordinary faculty-to-student ratio provides great opportunities for undergraduate students to work in state-of-the-art research laboratories during the academic year and in the summer. Below you can see examples of outstanding student research, along with helpful information to guide undergraduates toward finding research positions at Penn Engineering.

For more information, including summer and additional research programs available, visit the Penn Engineering Research section.


Penn undergraduates may begin an engineering master's program while still completing their undergraduate program via the submatriculation application procedure. 

For more information, visit the Submatriculation section.

Dual Degrees

You may combine your BAS or BSE degree with a second degree in one of Penn's other undergraduate schools. A Dual Degree is not to be confused with a Dual Major, where a student earns two majors within Penn Engineering, or with a Second Major where an engineering student also earns a major within the College.
