Celebrating 125 Years: Virtual Anniversary Kickoff Event

On Jan. 3, 1896, the Board of Trustees established the School of Engineering at Penn State. Across the nearly 125 years since that monumental decision, engineering-driven advancements have reshaped the world and Penn State engineers have played a critical role.

We invite you to come together online alongside students, alumni, faculty, and staff as we begin a yearlong 125th anniversary celebration.
