Maximizing Academic and Professional Success

The MAPS Program exists to increase the retention and academic performance of students who are committed to earning degrees from the Lee College of Engineering. It also serves as a resource for engineering, engineering technology, and construction management students to connect to college and campus-wide extra-curricular opportunities.

MAPS Transition Coaching

Coaching helps you:

  • Improve your time management  and study skills
  • Develop strategies to overcome common first-year student mistakes

Students who regularly attend transition coaching have an increased chance of getting GPA of 3.0 or higher over students who do not attend. Each weekly group coaching sessions will last one hour. They will be led by a College of Engineering upperclassman. The setting will be interactive, fun, and relaxed. MAPS coaching goes on for nine week. Most sessions are conveniently located in the Smith Building and the Freshman Learning Community (Hawthorn).
