First and Last Name
List your unique UL Identification number (begins with C)
Communications will always be sent to your UL email address. Enter your UL Email address (CLID or alias).
Approximate time spent in your engineering coursework and current degree program. For those of you who are not traditional students and have other hours that count towards another degree, you may select more than one option. An example would be a student who changes their major from art to civil engineering after three years. Technically this person would be considered a junior, but they are enrolled in freshman coursework for the 2017 - 2018 academic year. They should select "nontraditional student" AND "freshman."
Estimate the number of hours completed towards your current degree. Include all completed and/or currently enrolled hours up until Summer 2017. DO NOT include your Fall 2017 hours. A minimum of 30 hours is preferred. Anyone with less than 20 hours may not apply.
By Fall 2017, how many classes have you completed that are degree specific? Examples include ENGR 201, ITEC 101, MCHE 101, etc. Do NOT count any general education courses like ENGL and BIOL coures, as they are not degree specific. Please do not list the actual class names, only a count of how many completed.
When do you expect to graduate?
List any minors, specialties, or other degrees you are currently working on.
List any other degrees that you have earned.
List all student organizations in which you are, or will be, a member or officer for the 2017 - 2018 academic year. Describe any officer positions held in each organization.
List all your organization involvement at UL. Include your role as member or elected officer.
Do you have currently have a job? If yes, please describe where you work and your job duties. Is this a student, part-time, or full-time position? How long have you worked there? Will you have this same job for the 2017-2018 academic year also? Explain.
Have you ever participated in an internship and/or co-op? Explain.
What is your reason for wanting to become an Engineer or Industrial Technologist?
Did you visit UL’s Engineering & Technology Day or any other UL Recruitment Events, such as Preview Day, prior to attending UL? Please explain.

By submitting this application you understand that a minimum of 20 volunteer hours per academic year are required to remain active as an UL Engineering Ambassador until graduation or selected "retirement." This is an average of 6 - 8 events per academic year.
