Engagement opportunities

Student volunteers

Throughout the year, our office participates in dozens of events and initiatives where students are needed. From mentoring and tutoring to one-day event volunteering, students can impact the lives of others in the local community. Here are just some of the opportunities for involvement:

Service learning

Current students can enroll in service learning courses related to community engagement for college credit. If you are a biomedical engineering student you can enroll in any undergraduate BME design course, engaging in projects that will improve quality of life in the surrounding community. If you are a student in other engineering departments you can design your own service learning activity with assistance from our office. Speak to your department advisor to get started.

Co-curricular volunteer opportunities for pre-med students

The Wayne State University School of Medicine offers many opportunities for pre-med students to get involved on and off campus.

Educators are invited to leverage their subject matter expertise and leadership to inspire the next generation of engineers, computer scientists and researchers. Here are some ideas:


Faculty members can offer mentorship to K-12 students participating in our programs, providing guidance and support in their academic and personal development.

Guest Lectures:

Faculty can contribute by giving guest lectures or presentations to students, sharing their expertise in various fields.

Workshop Facilitation:

Faculty can lead workshops or hands-on sessions, sharing their knowledge and engaging with students in interactive learning experiences.

Curriculum Development:

Faculty can collaborate with our team to develop educational materials and curriculum for our programs, ensuring alignment with academic standards.

Additionally, our office can coordinate K-12 student visits to laboratories or events.

Industry partners

Engineering K-12 outreach depends on the use of college resources in order to provide a foundation for future engineers. The college creates and teaches summer engineering and computer science camps for ages 9 through 17, enrolling about 200 students from the Detroit-local area. We want our campers to eventually enroll in WSU, and later become active members of local industry. By becoming a K-12 outreach sponsor and/or providing scholarships for summer programs and Saturday workshops, partners can help reduce the costs associated with student registration and tools/resources needed for our camps/workshops.
