Engineering Academic Center

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. We especially welcome student populations who are traditionally underrepresented in Engineering.

Students are encouraged to take advantage of study center resources and learning facilitators located in Loew 207, 213, and 215.

  • Loew 207 and 213 Study/Learning Area
    Computers, white boards, study tables, and Learning Facilitators who can provide academic support

  • Loew 215 Classroom

  • MTUD - Math 'Til U Drop
    Scheduled around mid-terms and final exams, MTUD sessions bring together students enrolled in Academic Workshops and other interested students for an evening of study and knowledge sharing. Facilitated by Student Academic Services staff.
