The Engineering Student Network Group meets on the 2nd Monday of every month from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Engineering majors participating in this network group gain an advantageous experience as meetings are designed to equip students with the necessary tools to successfully navigate their academic journey from freshman year to graduation and beyond. Students learn skills such as professional etiquette and how to effectively communicate verbally and in writing, as well as sources of financial aid and internship opportunities. The greatest benefit is the interaction and sharing with other students and engineering professionals already established in their careers. To join this network group, click here or on the “Virtual Student Network Group Orientation Registration” link below.
Engineering majors benefit from a support group like this, since all students will encounter hardships while pursuing their degrees. Having someone to encourage and advise them is important, especially for the students in their final three semesters. Students nearing the end of their degree requirements are applying for internships, co-ops, and graduate school so talking to a professor or someone in the field can help these students make a more informed decision as they start to transition to working in the field or pursuing higher education opportunities
