FAMU-FSU Engineering Ambassadors Network (EAN)

Engineering Ambassadors Network (EAN) is a new program on the FAMU-FSU College of Engineering campus. Led by the Office of Marketing & Communications, this new group of EAN student “ambassadors” will help us change the conversation about engineering to audiences on a local, state and national level. 

FAMU-FSU College of Engineering is a chapter of the Engineering Ambassadors Network national professional development organization for university students. Engineering Ambassadors complete training in leadership and communication and apply this skill set in outreach primarily to K-12 students. The goal is to create connections with these students, to inspire them to see the amazing opportunities in the engineering field. We visit area schools and do other outreach related activities on campus and in the community.

Engineering students have a unique perspective and influence on many audiences, from college alumni to company executives and K-12 students. Are you interested in sharing the magic of engineering with these audiences and the public? Perhaps Engineering Ambassadors Network is for you!
