Student Ambassador Program

About

The Student Ambassador Program within the School of Engineering (SoE) is an opportunity for students who are dedicated to serving and representing Rutgers University. Our Student Ambassadors provide campus tours, sit on student panels and participate in public engagement events. The Ambassadors serve as representatives for the school, sharing the School’s mission and vision, along with their personal experiences. They can be seen at various events like the SoE campus tours, community outreach events, Engineer’s Week and Rutgers Spring Open House.

Our Vision

To build and inspire a diverse community of future engineers that strives to exemplify the highest level of collaboration, intellectual curiosity, and social conscientiousness.

Our Mission

As advocates for the mission of the School of Engineering (SoE), we embody teamwork, diversity, integrity and service. By tapping into our experiences, we empower prospective students to find their niche within the Rutgers community, and by engaging in open dialogue between faculty and staff, we can develop and maintain transparency throughout SoE.

This past summer, I had the privilege of working at an internship abroad, in the city of Jerusalem, Israel, where I spent time in a civil engineering firm. At my internship, I had the chance to use the knowledge that I gained in my classes to determine structural forces for the design of a cable car station. In addition, I did research for a patent for a dual-conduit pipe, which replenishes the water of the Dead Sea, while simultaneously distributing drinking water in the region.

Being immersed in such a dynamic and exciting environment has given me a much better idea of what it is...

Engineering is the art of applying scientific and mathematical principles, experiences, and judgements to create solutions that benefit society. Engineers design everything from important medical equipment to processes utilized in cleaning up toxic spills. Engineers are responsible for creating the world of tomorrow and in my experience, there have been endless opportunities that allow engineering students to do just that. Internships and co-ops give students the chance to be a part of something unique as these are job assignments at companies that provide engaging work experiences....

Hello! I am Katie, a sophomore in Materials Science Engineering. You might ask, how did I choose my major? For most of my freshman year, I was completely lost on what to do for the rest of my life. I had only just begun realizing that I wasn’t a teenager anymore and I found out that I didn’t know everything like I thought I did. I was even regretting my decision to continue with engineering, knowing I wasn't the best at both physics and math. All I knew was that I wanted to work with my hands on something related to sustainable energy and renewable resources. My decision had involved a lot...
