About CoRe

CoRe's mission is to help first-year engineering students succeed.

Welcome to the CoRe Experience

CoRe seeks to demonstrate to students the importance of engineering and the positive impact that engineers make on society and the world around them. Along with community and corporate partners, we bring real-world expertise and challenges into the classroom and residential environment, reinforcing the relevance of studies in engineering to solving global challenges.

Our Mission:

  • To provide early engineering students with unmatched learning opportunities within a supportive community that encourages academic, professional and personal achievement
  • To foster life-enriching connections between students and their peers, faculty members, advisors, and corporate representatives
  • To cultivate students' skills that encourage lifelong learning
  • To demonstrate to the students the critical roles of engineers in contributing to society

CoRe Courses

CoRe’s academic program is based on the principle that engagement in meaningful engineering experiences early in students’ undergraduate careers supports their success and persistence to graduation. Through our courses, EGR 100: Introduction to Engineering Design and EGR 102: Introduction to Engineering Modeling, we strive to engage students across the disciplines in team-based projects that pique their interest and give them a window into what professional engineering really is.

EGR 100: Introduction to Engineering Design

Introduction to Engineering Design engages students in multiple hands-on, team-based design experiences leading to tangible deliverables. Students in EGR 100 begin interdisciplinary, team-based work from their first day of class.

EGR 102: Introduction to Engineering Modeling

Introduction to Engineering Modeling provides an introduction to engineering problem solving and numerical modeling. The course focuses on advanced applications of Excel and structured programming in MATLAB.

CoRe Tutoring

Beginning fall 2020, CoRe will be holding tutoring in our new space in Wonders Hall! CoRe offers tutoring in the following subjects:

MTH 132- Calculus I

Corporate Partners

The CoRe Experience benefits from a strong connection to industry, giving students insight on engineering in the "real world". Building connections with our corporate partners helps CoRe students visualize the impact they can make in their careers. Our partners also support "theme floors" that teach students about 21st-century engineering practice, while providing collaborative spaces where students can work and play together.

Career Opportunities

The CoRe Experience benefits from a strong partnership with the Center for Spartan Engineering. Through this partnership, CoRe students are prepared to network with engineering recruiters interested in hiring interns and co-ops. Students are taught how to build professional resumes, prepare for career workshops and job fairs, and how to get the most out of experiential education opportunities.

CoRe works to create a sense of community for engineering students who live and learn together in South Neighborhood. It is important that students understand that these are not just classmates but also their friends. We want students to grow by experiencing the interesting, diverse, vibrant community of first-year engineers. The living-learning environment also facilitates social connections that broaden students’ Spartan experience.

Peer Leaders

CoRe Peer Leaders are upperclass engineering students live with CoRe students and serve as role models for success as engineering students. Through relationship building and group activities, Peer Leaders create a strong, connected support network that fosters academic, professional, and personal success for CoRe students.
