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 team building 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.

Student team captures gold in Paris

iGEM team in Paris

For the third year in a row, a team of Ohio State University students earned a gold medal at the annual International Genetically Engineered Machine (iGEM) Giant Jamboree. Food, agricultural and biological engineering majors Angela Szilvas and Satvik Kethireddy, and chemical engineering majors Ryan Burrows and Elijah Lothrop traveled to Paris for the competition in late October. The iGEM Grand Jamboree is an annual event that showcases over 300 international teams.

The Ohio State team’s project, called “Phinder & Phighter,” is a continuation of their 2021 project, which seeks to treat sepsis by neutralizing the invading bacteria, allowing the immune system to not overreact, which can cause harmful side effects and even death.
