College Visits and Tours

Interested in experiencing all that engineering at UGA has to offer? Attend one of our Information Sessions. These events involve a formal presentation from staff where prospective undergraduate students and families are able to learn about our curriculum, experiential learning opportunities, student groups and competitions, support for entrepreneurship and innovation, and much more. All Summer Information Sessions are followed by self-guided tour of our Driftmier Engineering facility. Information Sessions begin at 2:00pm in Driftmier Engineering Center. Registration is required.

Facilities Tours

Not able to make it to one of our formal prospective student events? During the Fall and Spring semester, the College of Engineering offers weekly tours of our Driftmier Engineering facility.  All tours begin at 3:00 p.m. in the Driftmier Engineering Center (map), and will be hosted by College of Engineering Student Ambassadors. Registration is REQUIRED. We will not be able to accommodate walk-ins. Please note that we are not currently able to offer standing facilities tours during the summer semester. Due to official UGA events there may be other dates unavailable during the Fall or Spring terms. Guided tours are unavailable during the Summer term.

Tours are offered most Mondays & Fridays throughout the semester. Please note, that Friday tours aren't available on dates we offer Information Sessions, as attendance at these sessions includes a tour of our Driftmier Engineering Center.

NOTE: Weekly tours are only offered and staffed during Fall and Spring semesters when classes are in session and are not offered during final exam periods. Please see the semester start and end dates below and refer to the University of Georgia Academic Calendar for any university closure or holiday dates.
