The Engineering Ambassador Program is an interdisciplinary recruitment, advising and mentoring program designed to connect with prospective students and students who are new to engineering.
The Engineering Ambassadors are knowledgeable, trained, and friendly fellow engineering students who connect peers to the support they need. Engineering Ambassadors are students assisting students with everything from deciding what major is right for them, getting involved with research, discovering student societies and organizations, engineering center tours, tips on talking with faculty, and much more!
How can I connect with an Engineering Ambassador?
During the academic year (When classes are in session and excluding university holidays and breaks), they are available:
In-person - (Engineering Center Lobby - Information Desk) Monday - Friday from 9am - 4:00 pm
Online chat - Monday through Friday from 9:00am - 4:00pm – Online chat is available from any academic advising-related webpage.
Peer mentoring and advising programs are shown to promote persistence, provide opportunities that encourage academic success, and foster a sense of belonging. Engineering Ambassadors are here to help students thrive in the College of Engineering & Applied Science at CU-Boulder, as well as connect prospective students and families to the College.
Meet the current Ambassadors to learn more about them and to see when they are available for in-person peer advising.
The Engineering Ambassador Program strives to:
- Connect with prospective/admitted students to the College of Engineering and Applied Science
- Encourage successful academic and personal development
- Promote student involvement
- Enrich the connections among engineering students, the college and the CU-Boulder campus
