For Queen's Students
Aboriginal Access to Engineering provides culturally relevant student support services to Aboriginal students enrolled in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. Working in partnership with the Four Directions Aboriginal Student centre, AAE strives to support the academic, physical, spiritual and emotional needs of students. Through AAE, students have access to tutoring and exam prep sessions, mentoring opportunities with practicing Aboriginal engineers, and liaison with industries particularly interested in the development of Aboriginal engineers through summer employment, internships and permanent positions.
For Prospective Students
Aboriginal students considering study at the Queen's Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science are encouraged to contact the Director of Aboriginal Access to Engineering for more information about the services available to them through this initiative. With a growing Aborginal undergraduate student body, particularly in engineering, Queen's is a supportive environment in which to pursue a post-secondary education.
For Aboriginal youth, teachers, parents and counselors
A key outreach element of Aboriginal Access to Engineering is the support we provide for Aboriginal youth and their teachers. Visit our Aboriginal Access to Engineering educational site (formerly known as nativeaccess.com) for culturally relevant educational materials, games, puzzles, videos, work books and other online resources to help promote science and engineering to Aboriginal youth. ¬†
