Today’s Students, tomorrow’s engineers
Engineering Tomorrow has two main objectives: (1) to encourage inner city high school students to pursue engineering in college by getting them excited and energized about careers in the field of engineering; and (2) to bolster the number of U.S. students entering the field of engineering in order to continue our country's leadership in innovation and problem solving at the highest levels.
I feel like I’m gaining opportunities that normal Bronx kids wouldn’t be able to access. Especially coming from Gun Hill Road where there aren’t a lot of chances to engage in the STEM fields, this gives me access to a community that I’ve never been able to explore before.
Engineering Tomorrow engages inner-city young adults in STEM fields that position students for successful careers in cutting-edge industries. Not only does this program address the nation- wide decline in students pursuing engineering studies and jobs, but it provides an opportunity for our young people in our most economically-distressed areas to obtain hands-on learning experiences in lucrative, impactful fields. The missions of ET and Catholic Schools of the ADNY both encompass service to our Catholic families most in need. I look forward continuing this partnership in support of our students and the field of engineering
Thank you very much for this opportunity to attend this conference. I was unsure about engineering going into it, but I really learned so much from this experience! It was such an honor to be able to attend and take part in all of the experiments. This unforgettable opportunity has taught me so much about the field of engineering. I had no clue what engineering was about before today - this was truly an eye-opening experience!
I spent the last two summers working with high-level engineers at ET to develop a 3D printing breakout and a wing lift breakout. I gained valuable project experience by putting the engineering design process into practice. Working with engineers helped me decide to pursue a career in manufacturing and prepared me for engineering internship interviews. My experience at ET has really set my application apart because I already had two years of project experience that is uncommon for first and second year students to have.
The breakout sessions are engaging, fun and well-planned! The day always runs so smoothly, and the ET team is so professional and kind. The college speakers did a great job at the Q&A time, and the high school students were really interested in what they had to say. We always enjoy having you here and we are so grateful for all that you're doing to increase interest in the field of Engineering.
