ENGAGE Engineering is an NSF-funded initiative launched in 2009 to increase the capacity of engineering schools to retain undergraduate students by implementing proven, research-based strategies into engineering programs. The resources offered through ENGAGE are enhancements that can be easily integrated into existing courses.
Today, for institutions and individuals, ENGAGE offers a plethora of publicly-accessible resources for strategy implementation. These include:
Integrating into coursework Everyday Examples in Engineering
Improving and increasing Faculty-Student Interaction
Improving student Spatial Visualization Skills
Since its launch, ENGAGE has worked with teams from 72 engineering schools to implement these strategies, impacting thousands of faculty, instructors, and students. They do not require large-scale curriculum changes. Research has demonstrated these strategies contribute to increased retention of undergraduate engineering students—particularly women.
