  • Articulate complex ideas to non-technical or diverse audiences
  • Develop team mentalities and team-oriented contributions
  • Foster mentoring relationships between students and peers
  • Foster mentoring relationships between students and faculty
  • Foster mentoring relationships between students and industry
  • Build onto a resumé or portfolio of work
  • E-Portfolio
    • Experiences
    • Projects
    • Processes
