Engineering to Change the World

Engineering to Change the World

Apply by May 1

Are you a future Engineer who wants to have an impact on the world through their work? Are you ecologically conscious and interested in principles for sustainable and environmentally-friendly engineering? Are you fascinated by how alternative energies and/or biofuels can be used in engineering? If you answered "yes," Engineering to Change the World is for you!

As a member of this community, you will take courses alongside your community peers, as well as the other Learning Community sponsored by the College of Engineering, Engineering Robotics, to promote a community of academic achievement! By learning alongside one another, you will have a built-in support network to ensure you always have someone in your corner along your journey. 

By joining the community, you will also participate in several experiences outside the classroom, which range from social activities to build your relationships and meet new people to behind-the-scenes tours of engineering facilities to meet professionals in your field, learn about internships and future careers, and explore a variety of paths for your future. You will engage in service projects to learn how to apply the ideas you are learning in the classroom into real-world, hands-on engineering situations in order to change the world for the better.

Learn more about the opportunities available through the College of Engineering.
