Collegiate Engagement activities are designed to help students gain a better picture of the variety of careers available in each engineering discipline, and to help align with WVU's Project 168. Collegiate Engagement represents 5% of the final grade in all Fundamentals of Engineering courses. No one can be exempt from the Collegiate Engagement requirement.
Completing the Collegiate Engagement Requirement
Students in Fundamentals of Engineering (FEP) courses (ENGR 100, 101, 102,191, 151, and MAE 102) are required to attend engineering-related events outside of their regularly scheduled class time and reflect upon these activities to complete an over-arching goal. These Engagement events are designed to help students gain a better understanding of their collegiate, personal, and professional development while attending West Virginia University. At the conclusion of the semester verification of the activities combined with a reflection paper will create the Engagement Portfolio.
While the Fundamentals of Engineering Program will announce Department Visitations and other general Collegiate Engagement activities, it is recommended that students actively seek out engineering programs and events on their own.
To receive credit for a Collegiate Engagement activity, students must bring a Collegiate Engagement form with them to the event, fill out the form, and include it with their Engagement Portfolio.
Collegiate Engagement Course Requirements
In order to tie-in course work with the Collegiate Engagement requirement, each course has a unique goal based upon the content of the course. The goals for each course, along with the policy for each course, is listed below:
ENGR 100 - Five Core Values ENGR 100 Policy
ENGR 101 - Diversity and Inclusion ENGR 101 Policy
ENGR 102 and MAE 102 - Professional ENGR 102 Policy
ENGR 151 - Self-Efficacy ENGR 151 Policy
ENGR 191 - Synthesis ENGR 191 Policy

Academic Enrichment Credit
Attendance is tracked for Academic Enrichment (and the accepted substitutes) by the Fundamentals of Engineering Office. You can check your Academic Enrichment Attendance anytime online. It is the responsibility of the student to periodically check the attendance record to ensure accuracy.
Academic Enrichment Exemptions
Students may be exempt from the required Academic Enrichment if they complete the Academic Enrichment Exemption Form via Exams before the end of the 10th week of classes. If the form is completed and approved, the student will receive a confirmation via email and will be exempt from the Academic Enrichment requirement for Weeks 9-16 of the current term.
It is the responsibility of the student to check the Academic Enrichment Attendance to make sure these exemptions are recorded.
