Welcome Future Engineers!


Congratulations! You are going to be an Auburn engineer soon. We are so excited you have decided to join the family. Our faculty, staff, and especially academic advisors are looking forward to meeting you to help you create a plan for your first semester in the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering at Auburn University!


 

1
Register for Camp War Eagle

The first step in your academic journey is to register for Camp War Eagle (CWE), the orientation program designed for all incoming freshman. Auburn will host 11 in-person sessions and 3 virtual-based sessions of CWE scheduled for the months of May, June, and July. We encourage ALL engineering students to attend the in-person sessions.

During CWE, you will:


  • Meet your CWE Camp Counselor and other incoming freshman students while you learn more about Auburn.
  • Discover campus resources and departments to help you succeed at Auburn.
  • Connect with your academic advisor and prepare to register for classes.

Camp War Eagle registration will open on Wednesday, April 13 at 1 pm CT.

Get Ready for Camp

Once you have registered for camp, it is highly recommended you register and attend one of the College of Engineering's virtual info sessions "Get Ready for Camp". This session will be hosted by Assistant Dean, Dr. Janet Moore, where she will review math placement, AP credit, dual enrollment, and what to expect during Camp War Eagle.

Both events are at 6:00pm central time.

 

Math placement will be covered extensively in this session but it’s worth noting Auburn now requires an ACT MATH score of 30 or SAT MATH of 700 for Calculus 1 placement.

All engineering curriculum begin with Calculus 1. If you do not meet the minimum scores to place in Calculus 1, you should take ALEKS math placement test.

Refer to https://aub.ie/mathplacement  for more details.

Know Before You Go

We want to ensure you have a great advising experience at camp and YOU can help make that happen! Please take some to time to review the items below and see how your academic plan might be impacted by potential credit from AP/IB, dual enrollment, and/or standardized test scores. We know it’s too early to know for sure exactly what you will score but students are typically very good at predicting their scores based on practice exams.

  1. Review AP/IB tables
  2. Review transfer tables for dual enrollment
  3. Review engineering curriculum
  4. Review ALEKS Math Placement

 

Planning to take summer courses?

Students who are interested in taking courses this summer at other institutions should reach out to our Transfer Specialist, Mrs. Laura Olds at engtran@auburn.edu.

Day 2 Camp Expectations

We have an exciting Day 2 schedule planned this summer, packed full of opportunities for you to interact with current engineering students, learn about academic support resources, connect with student organizations, and tour our beautiful Brown-Kopel Engineering Student Achievement Center. We want you to see firsthand how we are providing the best student centered engineering experience in America!
