Outstanding Women in Engineering – and Competitive Athletes!
Image of Emily TanasseWhy is it that engineering often comes along with an extra gift? No-one really knows. You hear of talented musicians also being good at math, which explains why we have so many musical engineers. But it turns out that at Boise State, for some students, an ability in competitive sports also goes along with an aptitude for engineering. At Boise State, a group of our engineering women students are also competitive athletes. View more about the Outstanding Women in Engineering.

The Engineering Residential College is a living-learning community for those interested in technical disciplines. The focus of the Engineering Residential College is on academic success with the primary activities centered on academic support. There is also special attention to preparing students for a career in engineering by exposing students to topics that are not always included in the formal curriculum, such as communication and presentation skills, along with teamwork and group process. Advising sessions will be offered in the community in addition to regular faculty office hours. Residents will also participate in weekly community meals. View more information about the ERC.
