IMAGE (Impacting the Matriculation and Advancement of Graduates in Engineering) is a program designed to impact the matriculation and advancement of graduates in engineering.

Within IMAGE, CECS ODI will coordinate a mentorship program that will: 1) Inspire undergraduates to pursue a graduate degree in engineering; 2) Provide undergraduates strategies on how to finance and successfully complete their graduate education; and 3) Inform undergraduates on the pathways to advance their professional career in engineering.

Please Note: In the fall semester, selected IMAGE participants will be paired with a corporate and/or faculty mentor in STEM. After their pairing, IMAGE mentors and mentees will be expected to meet monthly in the spring semester.

IMAGE Requirements:
  • Must be a full-time undergraduate student majoring in engineering or computer science.
  • Have a grade point average of a 3.0 or higher.
  • Attend a minimum of four IMAGE mentoring sessions.
  • Complete the UCF AAP Pre-Graduate School Knights Program.
