Promoting Mental Health and Wellness in Undergraduate Engineers

Headshot of man

Cal Poly Electrical Engineering Professor Andrew Danowitz is part of a team offering a free ASEE workshop “Promoting Mental Health and Wellness in Undergraduate Engineers.”  The live Zoom workshop is Friday, Feb. 26 at 11 am.  This is a great opportunity to learn from a colleague about this important and timely issue. Register here.


Before the COVID-19 pandemic, higher education was facing a “mental health crisis.” The rapid onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced countless additional stressors, and faculty concern over student well-being has increased. In this workshop, we will share the current state of research on mental health in undergraduate engineering students, including ongoing research to understand the impact of COVID-19 on student well-being.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  1. Define the current state of research in engineering student mental health
  2. Recognize the impact of online learning on student mental health
  3. Develop and discuss practices for supporting student well-being
  4. Understanding research based practices for supporting student mental health

The Cal Poly College of Engineering understands there has been an enormous amount of turmoil and transition due to Coronavirus (COVID-19). As we continue offering support to our students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends, we also continue providing critical updates as well as college highlights. Ours is a college full of creative and bright engineers and staff. For more information on COVID-19 visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website.
