Engineering Outreach Bureau

University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign - 2024

About Us

EOB is organized and run by members of Engineering Council, a student-run umbrella organization of UIUC's 13 engineering societies.

Our goal is to aid high school seniors in one of the most important decisions of their careers.

The EOB committee is composed of UIUC students representing various years of schooling and engineering disciplines.

Each fall semester, we design a fresh schedule for the upcoming program in the spring.

Upcoming Events:


March 21-23, 2024

Meet the Committee

Welcome to the Engineering Outreach Bureau team! We are a group of passionate individuals dedicated to promoting engineering education and outreach. Our team is committed to inspiring the next generation of engineers and fostering a love for STEM. Get to know us below!
