Engineering Ambassadors is a program started by the MSU College of Engineering in 2001 with the purpose of:

  • promoting the College of Engineering to prospective students and their families.
  • inspiring young people to pursue careers and opportunities in Engineering by educating high school students about engineering and what engineers do.
  • providing a voice for students in the College of Engineering.
  • enhancing retention by educating prospective students on the skills, classes, and occupations involved in the different engineering disciplines - promoting a "good fit."

Since its creation, the Engineering Ambassadors program has been involved in many activities, including:

  • Daily tours through Admissions
  • High School Visits
  • Expanding Your Horizons
  • Engineer-a-thon (and other Engineering Week events)
  • Science Olympiad
  • MSU For A Day
  • MSU Friday
  • Postcards and e-mails to prospective students
  • Career Fairs
  • Student representation at the Engineering Advisory Council
  • Student forums
