    • 1) Volunteering to teach particular portions of an engineering class
    • 2) Volunteering to participate with the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)
  • The benefit: Students, businesses, and universities all win under the above scenario
    • Students obtain real life examples of how their knowledge will help them to solve problems found in industry
