[00:00:00.970]Welcome to the University of Nebraska
[00:00:02.880]Lincoln College of Engineering.
[00:00:04.760]This module is designed to introduce you
[00:00:07.210]to Engineering Students Services, also known as ESS
[00:00:11.090]and the opportunities we offer before the start of the year
[00:00:13.870]and during your time with us in the College of Engineering.
[00:00:16.890]My name is Jen Skidmore
[00:00:18.360]and I am the Director of Student Development.
[00:00:20.710]I will be narrating parts of this presentation
[00:00:22.850]but you will also get to hear from other members
[00:00:24.770]of the Engineering Student Services team.
[00:00:28.470]My role in the college is to lead a team
[00:00:30.730]in Engineering Student Services committed to supporting you
[00:00:33.970]and achieving your academic and career goals
[00:00:36.910]while you're an engineering student and beyond.
[00:00:39.980]One of the areas I lead is something we call
[00:00:41.880]The Complete Engineer.
[00:00:43.000]At a very basic level The Complete Engineer at Nebraska
[00:00:46.400]is an engineer who has both a strong technical skillset
[00:00:50.540]and non-technical skills needed to be a successful engineer
[00:00:55.270]We asked engineering employers to help us identify
[00:00:58.240]the most important of these skills.
[00:01:00.330]And together we developed
[00:01:01.610]our six complete engineer competencies:
[00:01:04.550]inclusive excellence, communication, teamwork,
[00:01:08.120]self management and leadership, civic responsibility
[00:01:11.840]and professionalism and ethics.
[00:01:14.840]We want all our students to work
[00:01:16.450]on developing these competencies
[00:01:18.390]and strive to be the complete engineer.
[00:01:20.820]You can build these skills through just about anything
[00:01:23.020]you do in the College of Engineering.
[00:01:24.740]You'll find our competency icons throughout our website,
[00:01:27.930]on our event flyers and even throughout this slideshow.
[00:01:31.756]We make sure you grow and develop during your time here.
[00:01:34.490]Whether that's through an internship,
[00:01:35.950]a student organization you join,
[00:01:37.880]research you conduct alongside our amazing faculty
[00:01:40.840]or even going to The Complete Engineer Conference.
[00:01:43.610]You're going to learn more about plenty of opportunities
[00:01:45.940]to get involved through the rest of this presentation.
[00:01:48.300]So plan to take advantage of anything and everything.
[00:01:50.820]Trust me your path to becoming a great engineer
[00:01:53.130]begins here at Nebraska.
[00:01:55.090]There's more information on this
[00:02:02.650]The best way to get involved right away
[00:02:04.470]in the College of Engineering
[00:02:05.820]is to start at the NUBE experience.
[00:02:08.060]NUBE stands for Nebraska Undergraduates Becoming Engineers.
[00:02:12.040]It's a really fun two-day program
[00:02:13.560]happening right before school starts.
[00:02:15.660]All new first year students are expected to attend NUBE
[00:02:18.840]and students who have attended in the past
[00:02:20.390]have amazing things to say about it.
[00:02:22.330]For the first day, we focus on orienting you
[00:02:24.450]to life as a student in the College of Engineering.
[00:02:26.960]You'll meet current students who can give you tons of advice
[00:02:29.350]and get to know some faculty in your major
[00:02:31.190]before classes even begin.
[00:02:33.050]The second day is reserved for our annual industry day.
[00:02:36.290]The exciting thing about day two of NUBE
[00:02:38.170]is the opportunity to see your major in action.
[00:02:40.800]You'll see real project sites or company locations.
[00:02:43.540]Plus you'll get to network with engineers
[00:02:45.210]who might even wanna talk to you about internships.
[00:02:48.000]NUBE is a great head start and it's completely free
[00:02:50.380]so that everyone can take advantage of this opportunity.
[00:02:53.090]Dates and signup information can be found on this slide.
[00:02:55.910]Registration is just a quick online form.
[00:02:58.090]So head to our website as soon as you can.
[00:03:05.420]As new students, we highly recommend
[00:03:07.320]you get involved outside the classroom.
[00:03:09.510]This can include joining one of the many
[00:03:11.240]college of engineering student organizations.
[00:03:13.570]Several are listed on this slide.
[00:03:15.170]But this is just a short list.
[00:03:17.080]Clockwise from the top, Engineering Student Advisory Board
[00:03:20.190]leads and serves the college much like a student government.
[00:03:23.320]We have several student organizations
[00:03:25.100]for students based on shared identities.
[00:03:27.940]There are a lot of student orgs that work in a variety
[00:03:30.180]of competitions and major engineering projects together.
[00:03:33.840]We have service-based organizations
[00:03:35.620]like Engineering Ambassadors and Engineers Without Borders.
[00:03:39.140]And finally, there are organizations for students
[00:03:41.500]based on your major or career interest.
[00:03:44.090]Several events are held in the first week of classes
[00:03:46.240]on campus to highlight even more student organizations
[00:03:48.930]and help you sign up to get involved.
[00:03:51.350]There are several benefits to getting involved on campus.
[00:03:54.290]Some of these include, helping you to connect to campus
[00:03:57.420]and build your community,
[00:03:58.740]hone skills that future employers look for,
[00:04:01.550]for example, look good on the resume
[00:04:04.380]and provide students an opportunity to discover
[00:04:06.870]their passions, strengths and talents.

[00:08:46.590]Finally, I want to leave you with our top five tips
[00:08:49.670]to be successful as you prepare for classes to begin.
[00:08:52.870]Step one, check your email.
[00:08:55.110]Don't miss out on alerts from your instructors,
[00:08:57.230]opportunities from internships to scholarships and more.
[00:09:00.610]Get in the habit and start this summer.
[00:09:02.700]We'll be contacting you about ways you can prepare
[00:09:04.830]for your first semester.
[00:09:06.990]Step two, don't be afraid to build relationships
[00:09:09.840]with your faculty and staff.
[00:09:11.660]We want to get to know you so we can help you succeed.
[00:09:14.530]We can often point you to resources
[00:09:16.240]maybe you hadn't yet thought about,
[00:09:18.270]help facilitate connections
[00:09:19.900]and generally help you work towards your goals.
[00:09:24.670]When you need help, ask for it.
[00:09:26.840]And ask early before a situation becomes overwhelming.
[00:09:30.200]You can go to your advisor,
[00:09:31.610]Engineering Student Services staff member
[00:09:34.080]or any other faculty or staff member you've met
[00:09:36.450]for help along the way.
[00:09:39.760]Step four, get involved early.
[00:09:42.200]Join at least one student organization on campus
[00:09:44.770]preferably in engineering.
[00:09:46.630]You'll have a built-in study group connections
[00:09:48.740]for internships or jobs
[00:09:50.180]and just a good community of friends.
[00:09:53.170]And finally, step five.
[00:09:55.150]Sign up for NUBE.
[00:09:56.410]Your next step after today is to get signed up
[00:09:58.610]by the deadline listed on the website.
[00:10:00.660]It's the next part of your student experience.
[00:10:02.680]So go to the website with a parent or guardian soon
[00:10:10.440]Thank you for taking the time to review this video.
[00:10:13.170]We were excited to meet you through advising
[00:10:14.910]and at the start of the school year.
