S-STEM Scholars Program

The S-STEM Scholars Program provides 4-year scholarships to academically meritorious Engineering students from low income backgrounds. The students are distributed among all the College majors, but they all participate in a weekly seminar together which is designed to help them transition to college and achieve success in their courses. This semester, the students have asked for guest speakers to talk about their education and careers, and are most interested in meeting alumni with the following backgrounds/employment:

  • Software Engineer
  • Mechanical Engineer 
  • Renewable Energy Engineer
  • Innovation Manager
  • Civil Engineering project manager
  • Engineers from: SEPI, Infinity Engineering, Osborne Engineering Group, Duke Energy, IBM

If you work in one of the above industries/companies and would like to participate, please fill out this S-STEM Volunteer form.

 

admitted student events

We are looking for a few recent alumni (who graduated with their undergraduate degrees in 2018, 2019 or 2020) to speak with our newly admitted students during two upcoming Town Hall events. As an alumni speaker, you will give insight into your COE experience and tell the future 49ers what you're already doing in your career. These virtual events will take place on Fridays April 16 and May 7 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. If you are a recent grad and interested in participating, please fill out this Admitted Student Town Hall form.
