Engineering Communication Center (ECC)

Our faculty offer coursework to prepare students for careers in engineering. We are dedicated to both their professional development and social/environmental awareness so they can contribute their problem-solving strengths to real world challenges.


Community engaged courses move online

Engineers in the Community has been exceptionally popular, and, as students describe it, “transformative.” The course will transition from a “community connected” course to a “community engaged” course.
