The 2014 Women in Engineering Orientation Program (WEOP) gives women students in the College of Engineering an opportunity to meet and build a community before the school year even starts!  Student in WEOP will check in to their Residence Hall early and get familiar with campus and the Women in Engineering program through:

  • Rafting on the McKenzie River
  • Leadership development workshops
  • Community building activities
  • Enroll in a one-credit fall term course for Women in Engineering

Due to generous funding from Intel, this opportunity is offered to students at NO COST.  Interested students can apply online in the spring and summer terms.  Women choosing to live in Hawley- Buxton or West halls will be given preference in the admissions process.  For more information about this program and the application, please contact Ellen Momsen, Director of Women & Minorities in Engineering at Oregon State University.

Intel Engineering Summer Scholars Program

IESS Application will be available Spring of 2014

The Intel Engineering Summer Scholars (IESS) program is generously funded by Intel Laboratories to allow the College of Engineering to offer a Bridge program for incoming underrepresented minority students (URM) enrolling in an Engineering or Computer Science major at OSU. IESS is focused on increasing the retention rate of these students and getting them engaged in their academics at OSU as well as creating a community of diverse scholars.

Students choosing to live in Hawley- Buxton Halls will be given preference in the Summer Bridge admission process.  For more information about the Science, Math and Engineering focus of the building or to sign up to live there, please visit the Hawley- Buxton sites.

2014 IESS Program dates will be released soon - Please check back!

The goal of our IESS program are to not only increase retention, but also to develop future campus leaders.  The programs are designed to connect students with a solid peer group, resources on campus, a support structure of Faculty and Staff, and become comfortable with life on campus.

Students participating in the IESS program will:

  • Live in a Residence Hall during the program
  • Meet other new freshman enrolling in engineering majors
  • Take a field trip to either Intel Laboratories
  • Go rafting on the McKenzie River
  • Get connected to OSU Faculty and Staff
  • Learn about research opportunities
  • Participate in OSU's Challenge Ropes Course
