SELECT launched in September 2011 as the new student leadership development program for undergraduate students in McMaster Engineering. It is a program, but also a community. Our module instructors and coaches in the co-curricular component of SELECT are volunteer leaders from professional industries, who are deeply involved in the design and delivery of workshop modules. They connect us to the local communities outside campus, broaden our horizons and help us relate more profoundly to the people and processes in their industries. Student members commit to giving their best to the learning experience in the program as well as to building solid relationships with their peers, staff and faculty. Many SELECT members are Ambassadors and Peer Mentors who serve the student body through various initiatives housed in the Faculty of Engineering.
