That depends on a number of factors, but primarily upon your school and whether you attend full time or not. Generally you can get an engineering degree in 4 years as a full-time undergraduate student, but some programs run for 5 years, and some schools will let you save time by taking some of your core courses in high school. It is best to check with the school you plan to attend to find out all of their specific requirements.
