SUNY Poly Women in Engineering (WIE) and the College of Engineering are excited to welcome 11th and 12th grade high school students of all gender identities to shadow current College of Engineering students for our Know One and Be One (KBOB) program. 
Know One and Be One affords current high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to experience firsthand the educational requirements to pursue a career in engineering. Selected students are paired with a current SUNY Poly student pursing a degree program in our College of Engineering. Selected high school students shadow their SUNY Poly hosts for one day, including attending classes, enjoying lunch in our dining center, meeting other SUNY Poly students, and more. 

The process is as easy as 1 -2-3! 

  1. High school students complete the application form and select a degree program in our College of Engineering that they're interested in exploring. 
  2. My team and I pair selected students with a SUNY Poly host who is pursuing that program.
  3. We notify the selected student with their host's information and the date of their KOBO experience.
