About Us

The Engineering Peer Helpers support you by helping develop and improve problem-solving skills, and other academic skills, such as time management and exam preparation. Some examples of past workshops and services Engineering Peers provide are Engineering Mechanics I review sessions, mock midterms and finals, problem-solving support in tutorials, and specialized workshops for Matlab, Excel, and other software. In addition, the Engineering Peers also offer one-on-one sessions to help with balancing a heavy workload and studying efficiently.
