The Engineering Ambassadors are the student representatives of UConn’s School of Engineering. The Ambassadors share their amazing experiences as students pursuing the goal of becoming engineers. Through a host of hands-on outreach activities, they seek to connect with middle and high school students, prospective students and their families, alumni, industry partners, and the community. Engineering Ambassadors hope to inspire others to see the amazing opportunities in the engineering field and at UConn’s School of Engineering just as they do.
This year, in celebration of National Engineers Week, the Ambassadors staged a series of fun, yet informative, demonstrations around campus to show non-engineers engineering principles in practice. Engineers Week is part of many corporate and government cultures and is celebrated on every U.S. engineering college campus.
