Early Engagement

 

WiE DREAM

The College of Engineering is committed to engaging students, faculty and staff to positively impact engineering career awareness and preparation in K-12 education, especially among underrepresented students and communities.

OUR GOALS

Broaden Participation

  • Bring opportunities to underserved K-12 students so that they become aware of engineering careers and are knowledgeable about pathways to get there.

Support Broader Impacts

  • Enable faculty to extend their teaching and research in a way that encourages and supports the next generation of students to become aware of, and be prepared for, engineering as a course of study and career path.

Building a Culture of Outreach

  • Foster an environment for faculty, staff and students, where outreach is a normative and expected behavior.

Enlist Student Ambassadors

  • Integrate outreach into the student experience to prepare graduates for careers marked by service to their communities.

Summer Programs

The Diversity, Outreach and Inclusion Office will be offering one-day summer experiences for rising junior and senior High School students for the 2022-23 academic year. The day program provides hands on activities that highlight the principles of different engineering disciplines and promote team projects. Students will experience engineering from a humanitarian perspective and learn about the engineering design building process as it relates to consumer safety.
