Undergraduate Students

Students enrolled in the College of Engineering at Ohio State earn a degree from one of the top engineering colleges in the nation. Experiential learning is our distinguishing trait, providing our students with teambuilding and technological abilities that transcend the traditional lecture/lab approach. We instill an early appreciation of engineering through our nationally recognized First-Year Engineering Program and continue to foster lifelong learning for our students through graduation.

Our principal learning goal is to attract the best students, retain them by supporting their studies and experiences here in the college, and send them into careers holding not only their diplomas but the technical, professional and personal skills to succeed in the ever-changing engineering profession.

Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3: Fastest electric vehicle in the world

After three years of battling difficult weather conditions at the Bonneville Salt Flats track, The Ohio State University’s Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3 student team and driver Roger Schroer rallied to push their electric streamline vehicle to a world record two-way average top speed of 341.4 miles per hour (549.4 kilometers per hour) on Monday, September 19, 2016.

The Venturi Buckeye Bullet 3 is the latest iteration in a series of electric racing vehicles built at Ohio State’s Center for Automotive Research and is just one of the many experiential learning opportunities available to Ohio State Engineering students. Learn more...


First-year engineers strut their skills at annual robot competition

Hundreds of spectators fill the Recreation and Physical Activity Center's Davis Gymnasium to watch robots race to be the best in the pits during the College of Engineering’s annual robot competition.

The event is the culmination of a semester-long project that challenges more than 200 freshmen honors engineering students to design, build and program a fully autonomous robot vehicle in just nine weeks.

It also helps students determine if engineering is the right fit.

“We’re trying to show them as many different aspects of engineering as we can so they can make an informed decision of whether it’s what they want to do for the rest of their lives,” said Kathy Harper, a senior lecturer in the Department of Engineering Education. Learn more...
