Visiting VIPER and Penn

We very much welcome the opportunity to meet with prospective students throughout the year. If you can make the trip to campus, and would like to visit with program staff, faculty, or current students, please contact VIPER's Managing Director, Dr. Kristen Hughes (, and she will arrange an itinerary for you.

While you are here, we encourage you to take an official campus tour and attend one of the University's information sessions for prospective students. Please see the Penn Admissions website for more details on availability and registration. You may also be able to attend a Penn class, if your visit to campus takes place during the fall or spring semester. See this link for a comprehensive list of classes which may be attended by prospective students.

If you are unable to visit Philadelphia and Penn's campus, please reach out to us by phone or email. We look forward to learning more about your academic and professional interests, and discussing VIPER's focus on research and educational experiences at the very forefront of innovation in alternative and sustainable energy.
