Veterans in Engineering
Troops to Engineers Program
GOAL: Troops to Engineers Program (T2E) at SDSU aims to place 100% of program participants into a paid internship while enrolled at SDSU and into a full-time position upon graduation.
MISSION: SDSU Troops to Engineers Program (T2E) supports the career development of student veterans majoring in engineering and computer science. To ensure the continued success of veterans in our community, T2E has implemented a Jr. Troops to Engineers (Jr. T2E) chapter. Jr. T2E supports the pipeline of local community college student veterans with an engineering or computer science focus seeking to transfer into SDSU.
