About the Rodman Scholars Program!
The Rodman Scholars Program is the honors program for the top 5 percent of each class in the School of Engineering. Throughout their four years, Rodmans are given access to special research and design opportunities to continue developing their engineering and leadership skills.
Students are selected for their potential to become the engineering leaders of tomorrow, evidenced by their academic performance and engagement in improving the world around them. Rodmans are placed into a special first-year curriculum that allows them to expand and develop their talents by building on and learning from each other. In addition to the first-year curriculum, the Rodman Scholars Program encourages Rodmans to explore their interests through 1-credit seminars chosen by the scholars themselves. Throughout their four years, Rodmans are given access to special research and design opportunities to continue developing their engineering and leadership skills.
Professor Reid Bailey oversees the Rodman Scholars Program while the Rodman Council organizes a variety of events for the Rodmans and manages much of the day-to-day operations of the program, in conjunction with Professor Bailey. All Rodmans can be a part of Rodman Council and are encouraged to attend meetings that take place every other week throughout the semester.
