Conference sponsors and affiliates play an important role in supporting the FYEE conference. This support subsidizes the cost of the meal functions and special events. We appreciate these supporters and the part they play in making the 2013 FYEE conference an outstanding event.
The Annual First Year Engineering Experience Conference, is supported by the University of Pittsburgh, and Notre Dame University. The Swanson School of Engineering at the University of Pittsburgh will be the host institution.
The conference also received start-up money in 2012 from the National Science Foundation to help develop the mission of the conference.
In addition, the First Year Programs Division of the American Society for Engineering Education also supports the mission of this conference. Over 200 academic representatives are expected at this conference. Participants will include college deans, department chairpersons, and faculty in engineering and engineering technology, engineering student service staff and advisors, plus industry leaders from throughout the country. The majority of the attendees, however, are engineering and engineering technology faculty.
