PEEC (Program for an Engineering Education Community) is a living learning community program for first-year engineering and computer science students. Students in the following majors are eligible to participate:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Computer Science
  • Electrical Engineering
  • Computer Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Engineering Undecided

Elements of the PEEC Program

PEEC students engage in the following activities which are designed to create a fully
integrated learning experience and further the student's interest and success in
pursuing careers in engineering and computer science:

  • Enrollment in a 1-unit seminar together.
  • Reside on the same dorm floor in Del Rey South.
  • Participation in other co-curricular experiences together.

 Incoming first-year students can apply to participate in PEEC by logging into the housing application. All admitted applicants will be notified via their LMU email account to confirm their participation in PEEC.

All students enrolled in PEEC will live on the same floor of Del Rey South. PEEC participants will move in early to their residences, one day before first year students move-in to their dorms.

Elements of the PEEC Program

ENGR 198: Exploring Engineering and Computer Science

The ENGR 198 course offered in the fall will provide PEEC community members with the knowledge and skills essential to becoming successful students in engineering and computer science at LMU. The class sessions are highly interactive and designed to help community members plot a path for success at LMU.

PEEC Residence Hall Community
All students enrolled in PEEC will live on the same floor of a community residence hall. PEEC participants will move in early to their residences, one day beforeincoming first year students move into their dorms.

By living and taking classes together, community members will have an opportunity to form bonds and friendships to tackle the challenging, yet rewarding coursework that lies ahead. All co-curricular activities related to PEEC will be subject to local health authority guidelines.

Los Angeles Experience
Past excursions included trips to some of Los Angeles' well-known sites including SpaceX, Jet Propulsion Laboratories (JPL), and Disneyland Imagineering Experience tours. All co-curricular programs will be subject to local health authority guidelines.

"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."
