Resident Engineer With student

In partnership with the IEEE High Plains Section, the ECE department launched Engineer in Residence (EiR), a new program that brings practicing engineers to campus to share their experience and knowledge with ECE students. Serving as resources for career or technical advice, EiR participants span a range of companies and areas of technical expertise. EiR participants have their own space in the ECE student projects lab, Engineering B111, with office hours throughout the week.

Engineer in Residence Objectives

  • Better prepare students to be productive in their initial employment.
  • Increase student learning about engineering project management and processes.
  • Increase student understanding of expectations of professional employment.
  • Provide an experience for practicing engineers that is refreshing and stimulating.
  • Improve success and learning of student projects.
  • Form closer ties between industry and faculty at CSU.
