The W.S. Lee College of Engineering is committed to students’ success. We believe every student who is admitted to our college can graduate. We believe students learn by doing. We believe in teamwork. We also believe in the power of mentoring.
Students who participate in programs offered through the Office of Student Development and Success (OSDS) benefit from the experience of academically successful upper-class students and practicing professionals. OSDS faculty who lead the programs have worked as practicing engineers and bring real-world experience and perspective to the classroom and to all of their student interactions.
