About the Engineering Ambassadors

RPI Engineering Ambassadors (EA) program is managed through the School of Engineering – Educational Outreach Center. EAs are an assembly of highly motivated students that are focused on inspiring a younger audience to explore the role of engineers in society.

We participate in an extensive communications and professional development training to learn the techniques that enable us to develop engaging presentations, hands-on demonstrations to take in to classrooms. EAs participate in 12 – 15 full day visits into regional middle and high school classrooms throughout the academic year and encourage over 3000 students to consider careers in the areas of science, technology and engineering.

"Engineering Ambassadors has provided me with possibilities that are only available to a select group such as this. From research and professional development opportunities to instant recognition as a leader among my peers, EA has opened a new door. Through learning a number of different presentations, I have gained a plethora of knowledge about various engineering topics that I would not have otherwise had the opportunity to know."
