Engineering Living Learning Program

The Engineering Living Learning Program (ELLP) is a unique opportunity for College of Engineering students who are passionate about pursuing a career in engineering or computer sciences to live together in a common goal focused community. This residential experience complements the classroom expectations by integrating students into the Engineering Community with programs centered on professional development and enhancement. In addition, the ELLP provides students with opportunities to interact with College of Engineering Deans and Faculty, alumni representatives from several different industry, corporate partners, Engineering specific Student Organizations, advisors, and hand-selected peer mentors. These Peer Mentors help students excel in their academic endeavors while also helping them develop the skills necessary to shine both inside and outside of the classroom. Finally, ELLP students will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on engineering classes with other engineering students in a state-of-the-art classroom located right in the ELLP on the first floor of Woodland Glen III.To learn more about this amazing community of learning and how you can be invited to be part of the Engineering Living Learning Program just click here.
