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.

You can learn more about the members of the Engineering Ambassador program and their involvement at Rutgers on our Meet the Ambassadors page or on our Instagram.

Giving back to the community has always been a significant part of my life and I wanted to continue doing so in college. During my second year at Rutgers, I had the privilege of serving as the Community Service Chair for the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and even organized my own event to help make an impact on society. To me, being a student at Rutgers also means being a part of the larger New Brunswick community, so I targeted charities and organizations that served the local area. Around Halloween, I hosted a Care Package Community Service Event where attendees made fall-themed goody...

Over the course of my four years at Rutgers, I have been fortunate enough to have lived both on and off-campus, which gave me the opportunity to truly immerse myself in the Scarlet Knight experience. Because Rutgers has so much land (five different campuses!), there are plenty of options to find a place to live across all of the campuses. In my freshman year, I was placed on the fourth floor of Barr Hall, a co-ed all engineering dorm. In that year, the fourth floor was home to the Douglass Engineering Living Learning Community (DELLC), which is an all female living-learning community...

I am excited to write about one of the most fun and interesting parts of being a Rutgers Engineering student: senior design projects. For my senior design project I am working on a project titled, The Multi-Mode Hybrid Delivery System: Combining Fixed-Wing and Multi-Rotor Aircraft. The goal of this project is to have a drone autonomously deliver packages straight to your doorstep. To have this drone travel the long distances required, we will have the drone dock to a small airplane mid-flight, in order to do the long haul travel.

Currently we are halfway through the year...
