Graduate Engineering Open House at Ohio State

The College of Engineering invites you to apply to the Graduate Engineering Open House (GEOH) which will take place this October. The priority deadline to apply is Sunday, October 3rd and the final deadline will be Monday, October 18thSpace is limited. Apply by the priority deadline for priority consideration.

WHAT | This invite-only event aims to give prospective graduate students a preview of what Ohio State engineering has to offer and is specifically aimed at underserved or underrepresented student populations including, but not limited to, female, racial and ethnic groups (African-American/Black, Hispanic/Latinx, Native American and Native Alaskan) historically underrepresented in STEM fields, veterans, LGBTQ+, and students from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

WHEN | Recognizing you will have many competing priorities during fall term (and that zoom fatigue is real), we will be offering our open house as a series of sessions over the course of multiple days rather than one daylong virtual event. The main event will take place on Saturday, October 23 from 10am-12:30pm EST, with program and research sessions offered throughout the day on Monday and Tuesday, October 25-26.
