Engineering 290: Engineering in a Global & Societal Context
At Bucknell, engineers can study abroad. Engineering 290: Engineering in a Global & Societal Context is a three-week, faculty-led study abroad course where students experience the global and societal context of engineering in countries around the world. We’ve explored the interaction of engineering and culture on six continents, including in China, Costa Rica, Chile, Iceland, Ghana, Brazil and New Zealand.
Engineering Success Alliance
Engineering Success Alliance (ESA) supports students from under-resourced high schools who have the skills to succeed in our nationally recognized engineering programs. ESA is part of a comprehensive effort to increase the diversity of the student population through aggressive recruiting from predominantly minority, first-generation communities. We offer targeted academic support, mentoring and professional development opportunities to help students gain confidence, feel a sense of belonging and thrive at Bucknell.
