Outreach Programs


SECS CORE Tutoring and Resource Center

Struggling to be successful in an SECS CORE course? Tutoring (group and 1-on-1) available at our new Tutoring and Resource Center located in 114 DHE.

Tutoring available for the following courses:

  • EGR 141
  • EGR 240
  • EGR 250
  • EGR 260
  • EGR 280

Potential tutors: If you have been successful in a CORE course recently, like to help people and make some money doing it, please apply to be a tutor for any of the above courses that you have a proven track record in. Research shows that students that can actually teach others retain information at far higher rates than those who do not, so this experience has the benefit of information retention as well.

Oakland University’s School of Engineering and Computer Science is committed to introducing high school and pre-college students to Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Resources. Thanks to this early introduction by passionate educators, students are guided to a pathway leading toward a successful education and career in the technological workforce.


SECS hosts outreach programs, both on and off campus, throughout the academic year and summer months. Faculty routinely visit high schools, junior highs, middle and elementary schools.

Oakland University’s highest priority in providing exemplary academic, athletic and social programs for youth is protecting the health, safety and welfare of all participants. To achieve this critically important goal, carefully screened and highly trained personnel enforce protocols designed to ensure safe conduct and supportive interaction between youth and program leaders.
