We are busy planning a vitural expereince for prospective students. While we are unable to meet face-to-face this year, the same opportunities offered during the on-campus event will be offered during our virtual open house. Recognizing that our prospective students will have many competeing priorities during fall term we will be offering our open house as a series of events. Students can choose which time works best for them. Our main event will take place on a Saturday, with program and research specific opporutnites offered throughout the following week. When finalized a detailed event agenda can be found here.

Open House 1: September 12-18, 2020

Open House 2: November 7-14, 2020

The Ohio State University and its College of Engineering are committed to recruiting the best and brightest students for our graduate engineering programs.

Our Graduate Engineering Open House is open to engineering, computer science, chemistry, math, and physics students. We are particularly interested in female, racial and ethnic groups (African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American and Native Alaskan) historically underrepresented in STEM fields, veterans, LGBTQ+, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

The College of Engineering is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment.  As outlined in our Strategic Plan, diversity in culture, ethnicity, and background are essential for the health of the engineering disciplines.  The demand for engineering talent is so strong that it cannot be satisfied without the fullest participation.

Students from the following organizations or programs are encouraged to apply: AISES, LSAMP, McNair, NSBE, SHPE, SWE and Tau Beta Pi.
