School of Engineering Honors Academy

The Rutgers School of Engineering Honors Academy is a scholarly and community-focused program that offers students a unique opportunity to reach their full potential inside and outside the classroom. The program is designed to challenge, inspire, and support a select group of highly self-motivated engineering students who demonstrate remarkable academic ability, enthusiasm, intellectual curiosity, and a clear potential to make a difference as engineering leaders

Honors Academy Admission

Students who have been accepted to the School of Engineering may be invited to participate in the Honors Academy based on criteria that take into account a student’s SAT, GPA, and AP courses, among other points. Students must also meet the Rutgers requirements for pursuing Honors Courses. Students will receive a letter informing them of admission to the Honors Academy in February.

Please join one of our Engineering Admitted Student Events and hop into the Honors Welcome Session to learn more about the program. During these days, you will also have a chance to explore our undergraduate majors and meet faculty, staff and students across the school. Admitted student event details can be found at
