School counselors play a critical role in putting students on the pathway to successful engineering careers. It’s up to you to encourage students with talent in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) area to consider focusing their high school and college studies on engineering.
When you’re a school counselor, however, your day may be full of meetings, discipline referrals, and hundreds of questions from students who need help deciding what steps to take in their academic careers. NACMEBacksMe.org offers you information about engineering careers and the pathways to engineering degrees that you can share with your students. It also includes materials that they can explore on their own.
With the Princeton Review, for example, NACME has published The NACME Guide to Engineering Colleges, which profiles hundreds of American engineering colleges.

NACME STEM Innovation Grants are alo available for counselors as an extra resource for promoting engineering in your school.
