What we offer

ESS Center collaborates with various offices and departments across UNM, as well as community partners in the STEM industry to provide workshops, events, or skills that help build engineering student self-efficacy, preparedness, and success. We believe in supporting student success and retention through a holistic approach to their educational experience. The goal is to better assist students in preparation for their future careers.

ESS Center students and staff members also participate in a variety of annual career conferences, listed below under "Other Events." ESS also provides support to students for travel to these conferences. Find out more here.
