Outreach and Diversity


The goal of the CEET Outreach and Diversity initiative is to build relationships and partnerships with companies, high schools, and community colleges where introducing the CEET to students, faculty and administrators creates a win-win relationship.

CEET Outreach and Diversity works to grow the student body, support student organizations, facilitate scholarship opportunities for students, and partner businesses with opportunities to connect with faculty and students.

Student Organizations

Students can join one of many engineering and engineering technology student organizations that allow them to get hands-on experience in their areas of interest.


Each year, we offer 14 scholarships specifically for engineering and engineering technology students.

At the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology, we recognize that our strength emerges from the diversity of our faculty, students, and staff. We know that when we bring together a variety of backgrounds, beliefs, opinions, and life experiences along with inter-disciplinary engineering knowledge and skills, we strive to coalesce the creativity required to solve the most complex challenges.

Some of the student organizations that represent our diverse student cohorts include:

  • National Society of Black Engineers
