Welcome NEW Engineering Hokies!

The Department of Engineering Education (ENGE) is excited to welcome you to the College of Engineering and to Virginia Tech. We are the academic home to all first-year and transfer engineering students. Your official major will be "General Engineering" until you are eligible to declare one of our undergraduate degree-granting engineering majors.

The first step of your new journey is new student orientation. This critical, mandatory program will provide you an opportunity to meet university officials, finalize your first semester courses, and much more. Click below for more information.

Please also review our General Engineering Experience website to learn more about your major!
