Engage With Your Peers

A common misconception of online programs is that they are impersonal. But like most educational experiences, you get back what you put in. Take advantage of discussion boards and live study sessions to get to know your fellow engineering students. You'll have the opportunity to absorb professional and technical knowledge that can transform the way you think about tackling engineering problems—and you can impart knowledge that will do the same for your classmates.

I really liked interacting with the other students through the discussion boards. Even though we’re spread throughout the country, I still feel like I got to know my classmates.… It feels like a close-knit community even though you’ve never met face to face.
