Objectives
  • The New Directions in Engineering Excellence series is a collection of practical resources for educators derived from academic research and designed for use in encouraging student awareness of engineering careers, promoting student retention in academic programs, and advancing students' personal and academic success.

New Directions in Engineering Excellence companion products include booklets, slide presentations, and videos. The examples and proven methods presented throughout the series are relevant at every point in a student's career. As a result, the Engineering Excellence series provides valuable tools to support teachers, educators, administrators, and mentors who offer guidance to young women, of all ethnicities and irrespective of disability status, along their paths to fulfilling careers.
