Student Ambassadors

The Department of Bioproducts and Biosystems Engineering Ambassador Program is a leadership opportunity for students who are interested in promoting and representing our department. Ambassadors are viewed as an extension of our professional staff. Ambassadors play a large role in interacting and engaging with prospective students and partake in outreach activities to promote the department.
