SCDI Tours

We are pleased to offer in-person engineering tours throughout the year! Our tour guides, current engineering undergraduate students, 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. We hope you will join us to discover Engineering at SCU!  

The School of Engineering is offering in-person tours of our new facilities in the Sobrato Campus for Discovery and Innovation in the summer from Monday, January 8 through Friday, March 22. 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!

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 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!
