FYETAP Instructors

First Year Teaching Apprentice Program (FYETAP).The instructors in the course come from all disciplines of engineering. In addition to teaching faculty and teaching and research faculty there are a number of teaching apprentices involved with the course. As part of a highly competitive program, senior level graduate students can apply to be teaching apprentices in a program called the First Year Teaching Apprentice Program (FYETAP). It is a mentored teaching experience for graduate students that are nearing the completion of their program in preparation for them starting as faculty members post-graduation. The program has anywhere from 2-5 graduate students per semester that help to develop course materials, teach 1-2 sections of the learning center, and regular meetings with faculty (both on weekly planning and monthly on engineering education topics).

Undergraduate students (sophomore, junior, and senior level students) also play an important role in the first-year course sequence. Students are invited to apply for positions in which they grade homework, help students during hands on learning center activities, and hold evening office hours for homework help. These excellent students are a great resource for first-year engineering students because they represent all disciplines of engineering and can provide critical insights to first-year students as they prepare to select an engineering discipline.
