Change of Major and Transition Events

Are you considering applying to a major in the College of Engineering and Applied Science? CEAS offers opportunities for Freshman Engineering Program (FEP), Change of Major, and Transition students to learn more about applying to our programs. Here’s how to get started.

Join our CEAS Change of Major and Transition Canvas community

We created a Canvas community to send out important announcements, share resources, and build a network of future CEAS students. Join our Canvas community!

Discussion Boards

CEAS student leaders will answer questions about their experiences in the classroom and on co-op and how to get involved in CEAS majors – visit the Discussions page in our Canvas community to join the conversation.

Information Sessions

We designed the Change of Major and Transition Information Sessions to provide students with an overview of the criteria and process for applying to CEAS majors. These sessions will highlight ways to get involved in CEAS and bolster your resume prior to acceptance to your major. 

Engineer Your Major

Change of Major and Transition students are strongly encouraged to attend the yearly Engineer Your Major conference to connect with faculty, upper-class students, and alumni in their future majors. Visit the Engineer Your Major website for more information.

Student Panel

During this panel, you will hear from students who successfully navigated the CEAS change of major and transition process; they will share their tips and what they have been up to since being accepted. 

Planning Sessions

Attend a Change of Major and Transition Planning Session for your future CEAS major to learn about required departmental courses, possible summer course requirements, and planning for co-op.
