Now that you are officially a member of the COEN family, let us help you find your niche so that you can succeed. The College of Engineering is home to seven departments, which offer a range of major and minor undergraduate degree programs designed with your successful future in mind.
Engineering and Innovation Living Learning Community
The Engineering and Innovation Community (EIC) is a living-learning community for those interested in technical disciplines. The focus of the EIC is on academic success with the primary activities centered on academic support. There is also special attention to preparing students for a career by exposing students to topics that are not always included in the formal curriculum, such as communication and presentation skills, along with teamwork and group process. Advising sessions are offered in the community in addition to regular faculty office hours. Residents will also participate in weekly community meals.
For more information about the EIC and why you should apply to be a resident visit the Engineering and Innovation LLC page.
Internships are an important aspect of student learning in the College of Engineering. Internships allow students the opportunity to obtain relevant work experience prior to graduation. This experience helps students remain competitive when seeking full-time jobs or pursuing graduate research opportunities. Over 80% of COEN undergraduates work in research labs or have internships before graduating. This has led to over 70% of graduates securing post-graduate plans within six months of graduating, including 10% continuing their pursuit of graduate degrees.
The biggest factor for not finding jobs is whether students obtained relevant experience prior to graduation. Click the link to learn more about internships that offer both financial support and career-enhancing opportunities.
The College of Engineering offers several scholarships to both graduate and undergraduate students. All scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement. In addition, some scholarships require demonstration of financial need. To apply for any of the following go to the Financial Aid Scholarship website.
In addition to research, internship, and learning living community opportunities, the College of Engineering is also home to various student organizations and professional societies focused on enhancing academic performance, providing community service, and stimulating social interaction among members of the COEN family.
