Leadership Academy

The Lee College of Engineering Leadership Academy is a two year, extra-curricular program, modeled after leadership training programs for young professionals in industry. It prepares undergraduate students to successfully fulfill leadership roles on campus and within the engineering industry by building their leadership abilities. The Leadership Academy Experience is divided into five modules: Modules 1, 2, and 4 are held off-campus during retreat weekends; Module 3 is "AREVA Crucial Conversations," provided at the AREVA Charlotte office complex; and Module 5 is a capstone service project completed directly by the students. College faculty, industry executives, and Leadership Academy alumni facilitate the program weekends to provide real world-perspectives on issues relevant to today's engineering industry.
