Thank you for your interest in becoming an Engineering Student Ambassador! To apply, please complete the online application form.

Waterloo Engineering's Ambassador team is a group of trained, undergraduate student leaders, offering prospective students a personal, informational and engaging connection to Waterloo Engineering. The ambassadors have a personal impact on our future students, informing their decision-making by sharing their experiences and knowledge as current students.

Ambassadors represent their program and other on-campus associations (like student design teams and EngSoc) for a minimum of one term, with the option to continue as they are able.

The role

Our ambassadors are the public face of our programs. Successful applicants will:

  • Be available to future students, their parents/guardians, and other stakeholders, for personal contact and shadow opportunities
  • Participate (when available) in on- and off-campus recruitment events as a lead volunteer, tour guide or presenter (events include the Ontario Universities Fair, Fall Open House, March Break Open House and You@Waterloo Day)
  • Act as a tour guide or shadow day host for on-campus visitors throughout the term
  • Track contacts you have made with prospective students
  • Assist with marketing pieces for future students (including our blog, social media, and print materials)
  • Participate in mandatory Ambassador training and team-building activities during the term.

Requirements

  • A friendly, helpful and positive attitude
  • Commitment to the advancement of Waterloo Engineering’s aspiration to attract outstanding students (leaders in service, academics, social justice, entrepreneurship, etc.)
  • Good academic standing in your program
  • An understanding of the responsibility of the role you are undertaking (for example, considering your online persona and what it says about you)
  • A passion for, and knowledge of, Waterloo Engineering!

Accountability

The Ambassador Team is supported by, and accountable to, Engineering's Marketing and Undergraduate Recruitment Specialist and the Engineering Ambassador Directors.
