Engineering Ambassador Program

About

The Engineering Ambassador Program within the School of Engineering (SoE) is an opportunity for students to help shape the future community of engineers at Rutgers University. 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, student panels, 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.

It was not until I embarked on college visits across the United States that I realized New Jersey was the perfect distance where I could gain some independence, but also have the comfort of knowing my family was always a day visit or facetime call away.

Moving to campus, I chose to...

There’s the old saying that goes, "You are a product of your environment." One of the first trials I had when coming to Rutgers was my “people.” Not only in the sense that they looked like me or went through similar experiences, but also people who would be able to challenge me to push me to become the best version of myself (and have a fun time doing it). An organization that was able to supply me with all of this was the Minority Engineering Educational Task (MEET). MEET’s mission statement is “to increase the number of culturally responsible minority engineers who excel ...
