Student Engineering Ambassador Program

About

The Student Engineering Ambassador Program within the School of Engineering (SoE) is an opportunity for students who are dedicated to serving and representing Rutgers University. Our Student Engineering Ambassadors provide campus tours, sit on student panels and participate in public engagement events. The Engineering 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.

Although there are plenty of opportunities within the School of Engineering, there are also many others across Rutgers where you can leverage your engineering skills in different areas to create an enriching interdisciplinary experience. In the summer after my freshman year, I participated in the Aresty Summer Science program, where I worked with a professor in the Department of Marine and Coastal Sciences. I used MATLAB (which I learned in Intro to Computers for Engineers, a required engineering course) to analyze global climate models to study the effect of climate change in...

Praveen is an Electrical and Computer Engineering and Computer Science student who has a passion for application development. In high school he created an app which turned his school’s class web pages into an IOS port, which had not been done by the developers of this webpage application. In an attempt to catch the attention of a company he reached out to higher management, sat down with them, and landed an entire internship by showing off the product which he had developed. Not only was this one way that he showed off his technical prowess, but it helped build his confidence and...

Coming into college, I was very insecure, lost, and scared. Starting a new phase of life is hard and, personally, I had difficulty finding a sense of community because my social anxiety prevented me from making friends easily. Although I chose to come to Rutgers to pursue engineering, I lacked professional confidence because I come from a town where engineering was rarely spoken of as a career path and a woman pursuing engineering was never mentioned. With all of these factors in mind, I was so close to dropping engineering as a major and I felt that I was already starting...
