Visit BME's Undergraduate Program

BME welcomes visits from prospective students and their families.


Please contact Kitter Bishop, kbishop@virginia.edu when you know what day you will be on Grounds. We think it works best to visit in the afternoon around 2:15p, after you have taken the student-led tour of the Engineering School.  Last minute visits can often be accommodated.  Double check by calling 434-982-4100 or 434-924-5101 before walking over.
