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.


3-D printing adds new dimension to first-year engineering

The addition of 3-D printing capabilities promises to add a whole new dimension to The Ohio State University College of Engineering’s nationally recognized First-Year Engineering Program.

Focused on experiential learning, the First-Year Engineering Program, based in the Engineering Education Innovation Center (EEIC), exposes incoming students to the field of engineering through project-based design courses.

The EEIC purchased 12 new MakerBot Replicator 2 desktop 3-D printers for engineering students to move beyond just modeling objects. Each freshman Buckeye engineer will learn how to manufacture their own creations and see firsthand how to refine their work. The printed objects can then be incorporated into the students’ design-and-build team projects or used to enhance lab learning. Learn more here.
