Student Resources

The Center for Engineering Outreach and Inclusion offers a number of resources for engineering students—both undergraduate and graduate students.

Equity and Inclusion Resources

The College of Engineering is looking to further develop and implement a plan of action to address systemic racism. That starts with self-education and a commitment to building a stronger and more inclusive environment here in the college. This page contains various resources that we hope provide the College of Engineering’s faculty, staff, and students with ways to actively listen, learn, respond, and support our community. More »


While the college isn’t directly involved in matters of student aid such as federal student loans, we do administer endowed and corporate scholarships for engineering students based on criteria including major, interest, merit, and financial need. More »

Student Organizations

Penn State Engineering boasts more than 50 student organizations from diversity-related groups and major-specific societies to service and outreach organizations, interest groups, and competition teams. If you have an engineering-related interest (and we know you do!), there is likely a group for you! More »

Engineering Career Resources & Employer Relations

When you’re ready to start looking for an internship, co-op, or job, our team provides you with tips for writing résumés and cover letters, networking with corporate recruiters, and landing that engineering-related position of your dreams. More »

Special Interest Housing

Living in special interest housing is a great way to meet friends with the same interests and academic programs, learn more about engineering and engineering careers, and benefit from academic and social programs. These living options are typically located on designated floors or in designated sections of particular residence halls, and participation in the special academic and social activities is expected of all residents. Programming includes tutoring and career development activities. More »



Founded to serve students from groups underrepresented in engineering, the Center for Engineering Outreach and Inclusion assists College of Engineering students, faculty, and staff with equity and inclusion engagement. The center leads the implementation of evidence-based best practices to support student belonging and degree attainment, while also encouraging involvement with justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion programs and organizations. All are welcome!
