Ambassadors


The Engineering Ambassador Program is the machine that drives the College of Engineering's K-12 Outreach. Its mission is to develop and nourish relationships with local area schools and teachers. In working with schools and understanding their STEM needs, the Engineering Ambassadors connect available resources to bring a better understanding of the field of Engineering and what the UTEP College of Engineering has to offer prospective students.

The Engineering Ambassadors are teamed with a Materials Science Ambassador to form a team of undergraduate students who bring their experiences, technical knowledge, and excitement to various K-12 Outreach events and activities. Continuous training and team concepts are what fuel this team to invigorate and enrich the pool of future quality engineers and scientists.
