Are you interested in engineering outreach, giving technical presentations, or developing public speaking skills? Do you want to help change the conversation about engineering? 

If so, you should consider joining Illinois Engineering Ambassadors!

Through outreach and technical presentations, we aim to change the conversation about what it means to be an engineer by giving presentations on how engineers are positively impacting the health, happiness, and safety of our world.

Engineering Ambassadors is not an RSO. It is an organization sponsored by the College of Engineering, advised by Dean Brunet and Bioengineering Professor Dr. Amos.

Engineering Ambassadors also partners with other organizations like Engineering Career Services and Engineering Open House to help with volunteering opportunities, advisory councils, tours, and more.

Sound interesting? Apply HERE by Sept 15th at 11:59 pm
