SEAS Tours (Undergraduate only)

Take a student-led supplemental tour focused on Harvard’s undergraduate programs in engineering and the applied sciences (including applied mathematics, biomedical engineering, computer science, electrical engineering, engineering sciences, and mechanical engineering).

The tour, led by SEAS staff and students concentrating in the sciences and engineering, provides an overview of pursuing a technical degree in a liberal arts context, undergraduate research opportunities, related student groups and competitions, and support for entrepreneurship and innovation.

The SEAS tour will not cover the Harvard College (undergraduate) admissions process.  To learn more about admissions and financial aid, please visit the office of Harvard College Admissions and Financial Aid.  You may also attend the Harvard College general information session and tour.

Please note that registration is required for both the SEAS Tour and Harvard College Information Session & Tour so be sure to register as soon as you have a visit date in mind.
