Leadership Positions


Engineering Service Learning teams are lead and organized by the students.

Faculty and industry mentors provide insight into design processes and help identify technical resources. Each Engineering Service Learning team is composed of up to six students from all grade levels and majors or disciplines. Engineering Service Learning teams meet weekly during lab in the PG&E Engineering Service Learning Laboratory (SE1 160), where they consult with their team advisors, build prototypes and work to implement technology-based solutions to meet their client’s needs.

Leadership roles are standard for all Engineering Service Learning students. Leadership positions include Project Manager, Communications Officer, Media Specialist, Documentation Officer, Safety Officer, and Finance Officer. No need for prior leadership experience before joining Engineering Service Learning; training is mandatory for all Engineering Service Learning leadership positions.
