Engineering Residential College
The Engineering Residential College (ERC) - North Hall, which opened in Fall 2012, is one of the newest learning communities helping to develop the next generation of engineers, construction managers and computer scientists who will face the technical challenges of a global economy.
The ERC offers academic enhancement programs, and classes in the building, plus instruction supplementing math, physics, and chemistry are held every evening. A prime goal of the ERC is to jump start students' professional development by quickly acquainting them with the College of Engineering. Corporate sponsored events aimed at exposing students to internship, Co-Op, and long-term career engineering opportunities are held each semester.
The ERC is a hub for a series of activities and programs hosted by student chapters of professional engineering societies including: BESO, IEEE, ASCE, ASME, AIChE, SAE, AIAA and SPE.
Other activities such as Pizza Night with Industry Leaders and Engineering Council Meetings add to the engineering community atmosphere of the ERC.
- The Engineering Residential College is open to students declaring a major in engineering, construction management, or engineering undecided, and who enroll in college trigonometry or calculus courses.
- Incoming freshmen will be given preference for participation in the program.
- ERC residents will have priority scheduling for a set of first year English, math, and science courses, as well as Introduction to Engineering (ENGR 1050).
- Onsite tutoring will be available as well as regularly scheduled academic advising with LSU College of Engineering counselors and faculty.
- In partnership with Career Services, the ERC conducts training programs on resume development, mock interviewing and host corporate sponsored events aimed at exposing students to internship, Co-Op and long-term career engineering opportunities.
