Register for NUBE 2021

The Nebraska Undergraduates Becoming Engineers (NUBE) Experience is an exciting FREE welcome program for first-year students, designed to connect you to other engineering students, faculty, and your major before your first day of class. All new University of Nebraska College of Engineering first-year students are expected to attend the NUBE Experience.

You'll join fellow new students in getting oriented to the college, making friends, and building your community through welcome events. Meet upperclass students, faculty, and staff in your department, and learn more about what your education experience with us will entail.
