Spartan Engineer Welcome

Join other new Engineering students for our first program of Fall 2023, hosted by ESSC as part of the Engineer Success Program. You will meet with staff and faculty members to learn about research, internship and their course catalog. You will also have opportunities to join different breakout rooms to learn about services on campus and upcoming workshops such as time management and study skills. 

Date TBD for Fall 2023

Workshops & Events

ESSC hosts workshops and events throughout the semester on topics such as resume building, time management, studying abroad, finding and applying for scholarships, networking, mentoring, and life after SJSU.
