College Life

Engineering students spend lots of time in lectures and labs requiring focus, time commitment and hard work. Depending on how much you want to succeed depends on how much time you spend outside the classroom studying. Good time management skills will help you to achieve academic goals, while still enjoying the college experience.

Housing and Dining

Stundents in a dorm room Freshman students who are not living with a parent or guardian are required to live in university housing during their first year of college. The College of Engineering offers an optional housing program for freshmen known as the Engage Learning Community. This community gives you the opportunity to live in the same residence hall close to other first-year engineering students. Since you will be taking common classes with your neighbors, it is easier to share notes, form study groups and develop a sense of camaraderie. You can find more information on residence halls at the UT Housing website.
