UW Engineering Ambassadors

The UW Engineering Ambassadors team has an objective to reach out and spread the truth about how rewarding and worthwhile we all know engineering is. Here is a bit about us:


By sharing our passion and pride, we hope to inspire students to challenge conventional ideas about science and engineering by providing unique and exciting outreach opportunities for students ages K-12.  We hope to share our experiences and knowledge on how becoming an engineer is a fun, creative profession which is essential to our health, happiness, and safety.

Who are we?
Engineering Ambassadors are student representatives of the University of Washington’s College of Engineering.  We come from diverse majors and backgrounds seeking to share our passion for what we do and striving to share it with younger generations!

What do we offer?
University of Washington Engineering Ambassadors provides an outreach program that brings outstanding engineering students from the University of Washington to K- 12 classrooms. We can provide:

- 15-20 minute presentations on engineering topics that will show the relevance of that engineering project to a concept that has been taught in the class

- Hands-on activities or facilitate demonstrations

- Presentations on career opportunities within engineering

- Background on the different types of engineering, college majors and the general college preparation and application process

- Presentations can vary to accommodate audience:  From classrooms to school-wide assembly-style presentations

- Engineering Ambassadors at the UW are also available to meet with prospective students to discuss majors, coursework, scholarships and college life. Student ambassadors can also provide a customized campus tour.

We are actively recruiting members and are hosting an informational session!
