The Engineering Ambassadors is a professional development program with an outreach mission. Ambassadors represent the college through tours, presentations, and outreach activities to middle and high schools.
It is the goal of the Engineering Ambassadors to communicate the awesome possibilities in the engineering field to everyone that we meet. Ambassadors receive advanced communications and leadership training and an exceptional variety of experiences that are both fun and rewarding.
Importantly, being an Engineering Ambassador is a fabulous professional development opportunity that will have a positive impact on your future at Penn State. Learn more about us on our website: www.engr.psu.edu/ambassadors.
