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.

Meet Our Ambassadors
"In my short time as an ambassador, I've come to appreciate and respect the efforts of educators and mentors even more so than I have in my past. These people have incredible responsibilities and impact future generations in ways that are often undervalued. Embracing this role will be challenging but is considered a great privilege, and I look forward to inspiring younger students."
