About the Engineering Ambassadors

RPI Engineering Ambassadors (EA) program began in Spring 2011 and is managed through Rensselaer’s School of Engineering – Educational Outreach office. RPI Engineering Ambassador mission: We 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 5000 students to consider careers in the areas of science, technology and especially engineering. We estimate we have connected with over 45K students over the life of the program.
