Information for High School Students

Welcome high-school students! We are glad you are interested in the Tickle College of Engineering.

If you are interested in how to apply, please visit Undergraduate Admissions.

In addition to UT’s admission requirements, students applying to the college must also meet engineering admission requirements, found in the Undergraduate Catalog.

The catalog is an important success tool that you should read. The right-hand menu on the page offers you the majors, general education, and minors available at UT. When viewing a major or minor you can click on the courses to learn more about each one. The prerequisites are courses that have to be accomplished prior to taking the course listed. The co-requisites can be taken with or before the course listed.

The Engineering Advising Office has lots of helpful information in one place.
