In the Cockrell School, we offer several programs, organizations and initiatives that are focused on broadening participation in engineering and providing a Texas Engineering community in which all members are supported to achieve their full potential.

Texas Engineering Belonging and Engagement

The Texas Engineering Belonging and Engagement Office is comprised of three units — the Equal Opportunity in Engineering Program (EOE), the Women in Engineering Program (WEP) and Engineering Student Life (ESL). The three offices foster a sense of belonging within the Cockrell School of Engineering.
