Engineering Majors RAP Fall 2014

The Engineering Majors RAP (EnginRAP) is open to any student who has been admitted to UMass Amherst as an Engineering Major.

When you join this RAP you will... 

  • Share your living-and-learning experience with a community of high-achieving peers. 
  • Enroll in courses that satisfy College of Engineering requirements.
  • Work closely with staff from the College of Engineering Advising Office

Students take their first semester engineering, science, and math classes with others in the EnginRAP. 

Living together also provides opportunities to support each other through study groups and other activities in their residence hall.  Additionally, an upper class engineering student lives in the residence hall to help with homework and the transition to college. 

The College of Engineering offers workshops to EnginRAP students throughout the semester on topics such as resume writing, scholarships, and degree requirements.
