Learn about each of UVA Engineering's academic programs.

You don't become an engineer by sitting in lectures. UVA Engineering students spend a significant amount of time working on projects with real-world applications - programming robots to help people with disabilities, 3-D printing human tissue samples, or designing smart home and transportation systems.

In your first year at UVA Engineering, you'll take two semesters of Engineering Foundations -- a core course designed around project-based learning. You'll have a chance to learn about each of our undergraduate programs before declaring a major in the spring of your first year.
