"I met a lot of engineering student leaders that day not knowing I would get the opportunity to be in their shoes a couple years later."

"I can't believe how many people I met – students, faculty and staff – in one day."

"Being at Gone to Engineering was the first time I was ever around so many people who were like me. ENGINEERS RULE!"

"Gone to Engineering was so much fun because you get to meet TONS of people!"

"It was cool to see so many engineering students who were new to UT like me. It made me feel really glad I was in engineering at UT."

"Meeting student organization leaders gave me great role models while at UT."

Tuesday, Aug. 29 at 5:45 p.m.

Hosted by Engineering Student Life, Gone to Engineering has welcomed incoming engineering students to the Cockrell School since 1990. As part of the festivities, there is a Student Life Fair where representatives from Cockrell School student organizations and student services offices have information tables. New students also enjoy a free dinner (vegetarian option available).

Due to the possibility of continued inclement weather, the Gone to Engineering schedule has been modified. We will continue to hold the departmental meetings and food will be delivered to each location. The outdoor student organization/student division fair has been cancelled.

New Students:

Incoming Longhorn engineers must RSVP by Tuesday, Aug. 29, 2017.

Freshmen and transfers please wear the Cockrell School t-shirt you received during summer orientation!
