PEEC (Program for an Engineering Education Community) is a living learning community program for first-year freshman engineering students in the LMU Seaver College of Science and Engineering. Students majoring in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or Engineering Undecided are eligible to participate in PEEC.

To be considered for participation in PEEC, complete the LLC portion of the LMU Housing application before May 7th, 2021. No applications will be accepted after May 7. All applicants will be notified in mid-May via LMU email account to confirm their spot. There is no program fee associated with being part of the PEEC community for 2021-22.

If you have any questions about participating in a living learning community, contact Dr. Sandra Luca at






    1. Reside in the PEEC Learning Community in Del Rey South. Dedicate your time to the PEEC community’s study, service, and social activities.
    2. Enroll in ENGR 100 and ENGR 198 courses during the fall semester.


  • The ENGR 100 and 198 courses hold the objective to provide PEEC students with the required insight and tools to succeed in engineering. In addition, the two courses provide an introduction to areas of study, highlight career opportunities, and assist in acquiring the skills and information necessary to succeed in engineering. 

  • PEEC students live in the living-learning community designated for them in Del Rey South. Living in the community fosters a positive and supportive environment to help students learn together and from one another, as they experience the challenging integrated coursework specifically designed for them. The community is staffed with two resident advisors (RAs) who are also engineering students. They are responsible for building community on the floor and planning activities and programs for the students throughout the academic year. They are also available as an academic resource.

"PEEC gave me access to an incredible network of faculty and students to support me in all aspects during my first year and beyond. Through the program, I was able to explore a wide range of topics within engineering that expanded my appreciation for the field and aided me greatly in finding what I wanted to pursue. I am extremely grateful for my PEEC experience for giving me a holistic engineering experience as well as the opportunities and friendships that have resulted from it.”

"Through the various excursions in Los Angeles, I quickly became close with the all of the other PEEC students. PEEC challenged me to become fully immersed in many different engineering organizations and communities on campus. It was through these connections that I decided to study abroad during the fall of my second year in Bonn, Germany. The opportunity heightened my interested and experience as a civil engineering student."
