ANGLE

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."
