What is KUEST?


KUEST

KUEST (KU Engineering, Science & Technology) is a multi-level outreach program designed to provide underrepresented students from middle school and high school with an introduction and pathway into engineering. Students engage in half-day tours, IHAWKe student panels, and attend Engineering workshops. Students will also hear from faculty during a mock lecture. Lunch is provided.

This program works with students currently enrolled at Community Colleges and other universities, including Haskell Indian Nations University that do not have engineering degree programs, who plan to transfer into a KU Engineering degree. KUEST Advances supports the student’s smooth transition to the School of Engineering by providing academic advising before the transition to help students identify courses that align with their future engineering degree plan. KUEST Advances also offers mentoring and community for students after they transfer into KU Engineering to continue fostering their success, inclusion and belonging at KU.
