COLLEGE PROGRAM AREA:

DedicatedEngineers operates in three Program Areas - Pre-College, College and Professional Practice. Our College Program focuses on:

  • Promoting community service/service-learning opportunities for engineering students.

  • Promoting other learning opportunities outside the classroom (research, competitions, internships).

  • Supporting integration of design/design concepts into college curricula.

  • Encouraging integration of key non-technical issues into engineering curricula, including engineering ethics and the implications/effects of engineering/technology on society.

  • Helping prepare engineering students for “life in the real world.”

  • Honoring and rewarding outstanding students, faculty and programs.
