Gain skills for a pathway to leadership
Are you interested in a career as a business leader? You don't need a business degree — as an engineering student, you're already learning the skills you need to be a successful manager. Further cultivate those skills in the ANGLE program.
In ANGLE, you'll work with a mentor; participate in a project; attend business seminars; meet business leaders; and much more.
The ANGLE program:
- Equips you with the skills and confidence to lead real-world engineering projects
- Strengthens your classroom learning through application in an actual project
- Helps you build a realistic career plan directed toward engineering management
- Develops your professionalism and communication skills
- Builds your appreciation of non-technical factors that affect technical decisions
- Teaches you to apply engineering thought processes to non-engineering situations
"We had wonderful opportunities to network with many professional engineers and to network with engineers outside our own disciplines."
You'll receive or participate in the following:
- $1,000 scholarship, to be awarded at the beginning of the academic year
- One-day leadership workshop
- Seminars in leadership and business to be hosted at local companies (October - April). Companies in the 2018 program included LMI Aerospace, Product Creation Studio, Harvey Mudd College, Tetra Tech, Motivo Engineering, Amazon, Virgin Orbit, Boeing, Digital Systems International, and Google
- Relationship with an industry mentor with whom you'll complete a personal leadership portfolio and evaluate skills through reflection
- Participation in a cohort-decided service project related to the promotion of engineering in the community
- All-expenses-paid “Leadership Trek” over spring break consisting of on-site corporate tours and alumni networking
- Celebratory dinner at the end of the program
Students must meet the following criteria to be eligible for the program:
- Current enrollment as a full-time undergraduate UW Engineering student (in major or Pre-Engineering)
- Completion of at least one academic quarter at UW prior to the application deadline
- Good academic standing within the College & University
- Ability to commit for the entirety of the academic year (September - June) and be on-campus full-time during that time, with an approximate commitment of 25 hours per year + spring break Leadership Trek
