Maximizing Academic and Professional Success

Managing change can be difficult, but as a professional engineer or engineering student, it is unavoidable. Transitioning into UNC Charlotte as a successful engineering student requires adapting to a new environment and developing a more sophisticated long-term approach to learning.

The MAPS coaching program is a supportive resource to connect college of engineering students to college and campus-wide resources, extra-curricular opportunities, and organizations. Our goal is to develop independent learners and problem solvers.

Students who actively participate (attend seven or more sessions) in transition coaching earn an average semester GPA of 3.2, compared to students who do not attend, earning an average semester GPA of 2.7.
