Penn Engineering offers a number of academic opportunities for undergraduate students.
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. We encourage students to explore options specific to Engineering students through the Penn Abroad Office.
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.
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.
