Scholars in Engineering and Management (SEAM)

SEAM logoEngineering and business majors participating in Scholars in Engineering & Management (SEAM) will complete the value added classwork and activities of SEAM while simultaneously following a unique pathway through the Lewis Honors College requirements. The SEAM path adds business acumen for engineering students, exposure to technology for business students, lean systems certification, and lively discussions of contemporary technical, entrepreneurial, and global economic issues in a cross-functional setting.  Engineering SEAM graduates appreciate the value of business exposure, and business graduates have the knowledge and experience gained from four years of teaming with technology-minded individuals. SEAM is sponsored by the College of Engineering and produces a pool of entrepreneurial-minded individuals who are  anattractive, unique talent for potential employers nationwide. 

For the Lewis Honors College, this development marks another step in our mission to better collaborate with scholarly programs throughout campus. This formal partnership also furthers the mission of the College of Engineering by expanding enhanced learning opportunities and community at the undergraduate level. Honors and SEAM strive to accommodate the needs of motivated engineering and business students and help them reach their fullest potential in a seamless way. The primary goal of this partnership is to continue to serve the best and brightest students across campus.
