The purpose of the SELF on the Road (SOTR) is to give the rising senior class of SELF Fellows the opportunity to travel to a location with close ties to KU and serve as ambassadors of the University, the School of Engineering, and the SELF Program. SOTR will provide students with outstanding networking opportunities as well as the chance to visit leading engineering and technology companies and learn more about their innovations and discoveries. 

The inaugural SELF on the Road took place in August 2014. Students from the SELF Class of 2015 visited Los Angeles and Silicon Valley.
