SCDI Tours

We are pleased to resume offering in-person engineering tours this fall quarter! Our tour guides, current engineering undergraduate students, will lead walking and virtual tours of our engineering facilities in the new Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation. During these 60-75 minute tours our students will showcase our teaching and research facilities, discuss the various engineering programs and opportunities, and share their experiences as students in the School of Engineering at Santa Clara University. In accordance with local health guidelines, our in-person tours will be kept small and all participants must be masked while inside buildings on campus. We hope you will join us to discover Engineering at SCU!  

The School of Engineering will begin offering in-person tours of our new facilities in the Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation from Monday, October 4 through Friday, December 10 for the fall quarter. Our in-person tour, hosted during the week by our School of Engineering Tour Guides, will introduce you to SCU’s School of Engineering, take you on a walking tour of our facilities, and allow you the opportunity to ask questions and hear about first-hand student experiences. Virtual tour options will be added soon!

In-person tours will be offered at the following times during the fall quarter:

  • Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 11:45 a.m. and 3:45 p.m.
  • Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12:15 p.m. and 3:45 p.m.

We will be unable to offer tours on the following days:

  • November 22-26 (Thanksgiving Week Academic Holiday)

Sign up for a session here.

Our engineering tours are meant to supplement the sessions offered through the Office of Undergraduate Admission. If you would like to explore more of Santa Clara University as a whole, please visit Undergraduate Admission for a variety of other options including in-person and virtual campus tours, podcasts, videos and more.

If you have any further questions about the School of Engineering, we would love to connect with you! We are happy to put you in touch with some of our current students and faculty to share more information about their department and majors, student opportunities, and life at the School of Engineering. If interested, please send a request to engineeringtours@scu.edu and include any particular majors of interest. As soon as we receive your request, we will connect you with a student or faculty member for a conversation. We hope to hear from you soon! 

If you are a high school counselor or looking to schedule a group tour, please email Engineering Undergraduate Programs to schedule your tour: engineeringtours@scu.edu
