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.

Engineers in Gear Study Sessions

Engineers in Gear (EIG) study sessions are at least 2-hour periods the week prior to exams to prepare students for the types of questions that could be asked on their upcoming exams. These sessions are facilitated by EAC staff. Students will have the opportunity to work on the concepts and problems they know they need more practice on for their upcoming exam. There will be an opportunity to review previous exams and work through sample problems. Emphasis is placed on the problem solving strategy for different types of problems. Students are encouraged to time themselves as they work through sample problems to practice the speed they’ll need for the exam.

For Winter 2022, the EIG session topics are: AA 210; CEE 220; EE 215; Math 207 and 208; ME 230; MSE 170; and Phys 121.

Please sign up for one or more of our virtual EIG reviews for the FIRST session by completing the online Google form here. 

It will give you the Zoom links for each session you register for. 

Should you lose your Zoom, please contact either Sheldon Levias or Lynne Spencer directly.

Looking forward to seeing you soon!
