Engineering for US All (e4usa) and MathWorks Partner to Create New Course

MathWorks logo

Engineering for US All and MathWorks are excited to announce a new collaboration! e4usa will create a new e4usa+Programming yearlong academic course.  Adding to the growing list of courses in the e4usa Program of Study, this course will become a second year course to follow on to the e4usa+Making course that introduces engineering, engineering design, and CAD.

Our e4usa+Programming goals includes equipping high school students with valuable 21st century relevant programming knowledge and skills. Utilizing MATLAB, a programming and computing platform that is used by millions of engineers and many academic institutions, this course will reinforce the e4usa learning threads and integrate computational thinking activities that align with Computer Science learning standards developed by the Computer Science Teacher Association. These standards are widely adopted in career and technical education programs across the country.

The new e4usa+Programming course will be piloted in five e4usa partner high schools across the United States in the 2024-2025 academic year.  Look for more information to come in the fall as these e4usa educators start their work.

MathWorks is the leading developer of mathematical computing software. MATLAB, the language of engineers and scientists, is a programming environment for algorithm development, data analysis, visualization, and numeric computation. Simulink is a block diagram environment for simulation and Model-Based Design of multidomain and embedded engineering systems. Engineers and scientists worldwide rely on these products to accelerate the pace of discovery, innovation, and development in automotive, aerospace, communications, electronics, industrial automation, and other industries. MATLAB and Simulink are fundamental teaching and research tools in the world's top universities and learning institutions. Founded in 1984, MathWorks employs more than 6,000 people in 34 offices around the world, with headquarters in Natick, Massachusetts, USA. For additional information, visit


e4usa Sponsors International Coalition of Girls' Schools Symposium

The mission of the International Coalition of Girls' Schools aligns well with e4usa's mission of "for us all". To that end, Dr. Stacy Klein-Gardner, e4usa Executive Director, is to exhibit at the International Coalition of Girls' Schools Symposium on Feb 15 at the Marlborough School (CA). The day’s program will include keynote, breakout, and hands-on workshop sessions focused on the theme of Celebrating the Power of Girls and Girls’ Schools.

e4usa College Week

A collection of  snippets of partners universities presentations


e4usa College Week ran from Tuesday, January 23rd to Friday, January 26th. This week provided high school students, teachers, parents, counselors and other stakeholders the opportunity to hear from e4usa partner post-secondary institutions.

Our ultimate goal was to share with our high school community how students can continue their education at institutions that are already involved with e4usa. In addition to learning about how students can receive college/university credit for e4usa, they also heard about great engineering majors offered by these institutions. Participants also had the chance to learn about special programs for pre-college students like engineering/STEM summer camps offered on different partner campuses.

The week started with a virtual e4usa College and Career Night which offered participants the chance to hear from some of our colleges/universities in a "live event" format, and learn more about the benefits of engineering and e4usa. Then, from Wednesday, January 24th - Friday, January 26th, different colleges and universities hosted their own short virtual events that were designed to inform participants about specific offerings at their institutions. 

Want to offer e4usa on your college campus?

Are you looking to refresh your Intro to Engineering course to include authentic engineering design problems for real clients?  Or perhaps you need a new course to keep first year students excited about engineering while you build their math skills? What about a course for non-majors to build their engineering literacy? e4usa can be scaled to suit all of these audiences on your campus.
