Admissions Events & Tours

College of Engineering Prospective Student Visits

The College hosts a variety of sessions throughout the year (listed below) designed to introduce prospective students to the curriculum, research opportunities, study abroad, and the student experience in the College of Engineering at UC Santa Barbara.

Please note, due to the nature of the research conducted in labs, as well as labs being actively used, we do not offer tours of engineering labs or facilities.  You may review a selection of photographs of lab spaces here.
