Pre-Major Students

Your first years as a Penn State engineer is full of challenges and opportunities: challenging classes, a growing social life, adjusting to being on your own, and choosing the path for your academic and professional future. 

It can be overwhelming trying to figure out the best choices for you given your individual goals and aspirations. 

The Engineering Advising Center (EAC) is here to help!

The EAC is your source for information about scheduling, degree requirements, entrance-to-major, and so much more. We can also help you make big decisions when it comes to your major, study abroad options, internships, and so much more!

Scheduling a Meeting

You should meet with an adviser at least once per semester. The EAC is especially helpful when you are working on long-term scheduling, want to ensure that you can fit in a study abroad opportunity, or want to learn whether a specific major fits with your career interests and goals.



The Engineering Advising Center (EAC) serves as the academic advising resource for students in pre-major status (ENGR) at University Park. Once students have been admitted to a College of Engineering major, they will be assigned to a faculty adviser in that major.
