Certificate in Personal and Community Mental Well-Being

This certificate supports student wellbeing, ensuring that every student who enters engineering has an opportunity to develop their resilience. Research by Alameda (2009) found that students benefit from mental health and wellness instruction to teach resilience and coping skills. Using already scheduled class time to teach these topics, and delivering co-curricular material specifically for engineers, we support students' mental well-being as well as their academic achievement.
