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.

During my first year at Rutgers, I was lucky enough to be placed in Barr Hall in the Douglass Engineering Living Learning Community. This was a community under the Douglass Residential College for women pursuing engineering at Rutgers. It was great, because we helped each other through the tough classes like Engineering Mechanics: Statics and every level of Calculus we had to take. After my first semester, I learned about Phi Sigma Rho, the engineering sorority on campus. I never thought I would even consider joining a sorority, as I was primarily focused on getting through...

Coming to Rutgers I shared the same feelings as most students did. I was afraid. I was afraid of how I would perform in my classes, of not knowing as many of the people as in high school and of not finding somewhere I belonged. Because of these feelings I was ultimately afraid of stepping out of my comfort zone. I knew friends from high school coming here and decided to live with them and stay close to them rather than branch out. Most of all I was afraid of change. 

Because of my apprehensions, I sought out familiar faces to get myself used to college life...

If you had asked me my freshman year of highschool what I would be studying in college, I would have never guessed it would be Electrical and Computer Engineering. I had a conviction to study political science and economics: I only cared about my history and econ classes, and I was in love with the Model United Nations and Debate clubs at my school. It wasn't until my junior year of high school when two classes-- and in particular the teachers that taught them-- completely changed my perspective. I was fortunate to have AP Computer Science offered at my school, so I decided to...
