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 introductory courses alongside your community peers in Engineering to Change the World, as well as the other learning community sponsored by the College of Engineering: Engineering Robotics.

You'll also have the opportunity to participate in several experiences outside the classroom, which will range from social activities to behind-the-scenes tours of engineering facilities. Pictured here is an Engineering LC trip to visit NASA facilities in 2012. 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.
