The College of Engineering Dean's Ambassadors

Who are the Engineering Ambassadors?

The Batten College of Engineering and Technology is proudly represented by the Dean's Engineering Ambassadors. Our ambassadors are our student leaders at the College of Engineering and Technology, and provide tours of our facilities to prospective students and their families, tours for school groups, and support for events. The Ambassadors also host the First Fridays program.

The Engineering Ambassadors are a strategic concept of former Dean Stephanie Adams, who invested in this concept by recruiting self-motivated volunteers who take initiative, set a positive tone, and understand the importance of displaying professionalism and tact, while representing the College in internal and external events. Since its inception, Ambassadors have impacted more than 10,000 people including K-12 students, parents, research partners, and high school counselors and teachers.
