Enhancing Student Opportunities: Real-World Experiences
Engineers use science, math, engineering knowledge and problem-solving skills to solve problems that enhance people's lives. Projects include building a bridge, designing an electronic circuit, extending energy resources, developing a new chemical process, writing code for computers, and devising materials with special properties. Our students receive free tutoring from the National Engineering Honor Society and the International Engineering Club. And many students participate in Engineers Without Borders, designed to facilitate those interested in study abroad, international internships or international service.
