Your CEAS Recruitment Team

Welcome to the College of Engineering or Applied Science. You'll hear us often referred to as CEAS on campus! While we would love to show you around campus in person, we've created an immersive digital experience that includes a virtual tour of the engineering facilities and department talks from faculty, that will help you fall in love with UC. 

CEAS Virtual College Close-Up Presentation

We will host CEAS Virtual College College Close-Ups on Thursdays from 6-7:00 PM EST. The CEAS College Close-Ups involves a presentation overview of the College of Engineering & Applied Science and a question and answer session with a panel of current CEAS students.

Fall 2021 Admissions Updates

We will be test optional for students applying to CEAS for Fall 2021. Please visit UC Admissions Test Optional page for more information.
