Location: Loew Hall 207, 213, and 215
Registration not required.
The Engineering Academic Center (EAC) is a place where white boards are brimming with equations worked over by students to hone the skills they need to succeed in introductory math, physics or chemistry courses. Workshop participants, usually 10 to 20 students, meet twice a week in study groups and form learning communities.
Learn more at Engineering Academic Center.
The session dates and times are to be announced
Groups meet in Loew Hall 014
Registration for group sessions will open soon
Meet other pre-engineering students and learn from each other’s questions and experiences at one of our group advising sessions! Group advising sessions are held periodically throughout the year and are a great opportunity to discuss topics with an adviser while also connecting with your peers.
Peer and Alumni Support
Peer Mentor Program
The CoE Peer Mentor Program helps connect first and second-year students with upperclassmen studying engineering. Search the Peer Mentor list for an engineering student whose interests align with your own. Ask them questions, hear about their experiences, and get some friendly advice!
