Admissions eventsPhoto by Noah BergerIf you have one day to visit Berkeley Engineering, make it Cal Day! At this annual event — to be held Saturday, April 22 in 2017 — the college hosts more than 60 events, demonstrations, tours, exhibits and lectures throughout the day to help you learn more about the fantastic breadth of opportunities that await you at Berkeley. You can also meet current students, faculty, advisers and deans. Both the event and campus parking are free. More details are available on the campus Cal Day website.

Undergraduate engineering information sessions

Undergraduate information sessions during April, presented by the peer advisers from Engineering Student Services, will provide prospective undergraduates with the opportunity to ask questions of current students about Berkeley Engineering’s majors, courses and student life.
