Engineers in the 21st Century need the ability to innovate, communicate, and perform at the highest levels in an increasingly global and demanding world. Producing graduates that meet these standards is critical to retaining America's technical leadership.
The MSU College of Engineering has responded to this need through an initiative that integrates the first year engineering academic program and an engineering living-learning community to support the personal and professional growth of these students during this important transition year.
Part of the mission of the CoRe Experience is to excite students about the importance of engineering and the positive impact that engineers make on society and the world around them. One way we accomplish this is to partner with corporate sponsors to bring real-world expertise and challenges into the classroom and residential environment, reinforcing the relevance of studies in engineering to solving global challenges.
