Our Purpose

Student Success Guidebook

The key to success in engineering school? There's a book for that. BCOE alumnus Ruperd Wilson interviewed BCOE engineering peers on their tried-and-true best practices for success in engineering school. The resulting 33-page guidebook contains words of wisdom for incoming freshmen, transfer students and graduating seniors to help in their engineering education and careers.



The vision of the Office of Student Academic Affairs is to support the well-rounded development of engineering students in their degree pursuit, career preparation, and readiness for global citizenship.
