K-12 STEM Outreach

At the Cockrell School of Engineering, we believe in broadening participation to enrich the environment for all. Broad participation in the workplace improves business' need to serve a broad customer base and spurs innovation. Broad participation in the classroom fosters respect for new ways of thinking and learning and prepares students for the global community where they will live and work.

Partner with Texas ECE by addressing the shortage of STEM, and broadening participation in engineering through a variety of proven student success components. Join us in being a part of the solution.

Educational support of program components can include:

  • Edison Lecture Series
    an interactive STEM learning experience engaging approximately 1500 middle and high school students with the fun side of electrical and computer engineering.
  • ECE TALENT Success Program
    The ECE TALENT Success Program provides students with educational tools that contribute to increased retention, attrition, and graduation rates by partnering staff and faculty with ECE students who want to improve their Grade Point Averages and strengthen engineering identity. 

The department relies on corporate and alumni support and engagement to improve the demographics and success rates of our future electrical and computer engineers. To make a difference as a thought leader in the broadening participation in engineering domain, please contact Jennifer Gallant for more information.

Additionally, at the College-level, we have two active, successful programs: the Women in Engineering Program and the Equal Opportunity in Engineering Program. Both seek to broaden participation within the Cockrell School by supporting and encouraging a variety of ideas, points of view and skills.
