Featured Programs and Initiatives

Engineering Office of Student Success

The OSS is staffed by engineering professionals who serve as academic advisers. OSS advisers help you stay on track with your degree program while crafting a custom set of experiences (co-op, study abroad, ETHOS, etc.) to complement your coursework.

The ETHOS Center

Students serve others and use practical engineering skills for humanitarian purposes. Our students learn about the world, different cultures and themselves. Students participate internationally or domestically in technical immersions for 11+ weeks or in breakouts for up to two weeks.

Diversity in Engineering Center

The Diversity in Engineering Center connects engineering students, faculty and staff as well as engineering industry and community partners to create opportunities for academic success, professional networking and inclusive communities.

Innovation Center

In the Innovation Center, student teams solve real-world problems for industry clients. More than 1,500 challenges have been solved for over 200 companies.

Engineering Co-op and Internship

Explore Your Engineering Future

Take your engineering experience to the next level and find your passion with co-op and internship opportunities. All engagements are paid positions and provide invaluable engineering work experience integrated into the student's academic plan. In one academic year, over 450 undergraduates accepted engineering placements that resulted in $6.2M paid directly to the undergrads.
