Abstract: We redesigned a first-year course to support diverse students to develop a sense of belonging and professional identity in engineering. We collected student work (N=104) and interviewed a subset (n=8). Students cited altruism, family, camaraderie, work ethic, and enjoying science and mathematics. They positioned themselves as problem solvers capable of the hard work ahead. Students began to take up professional engineering identities without sacrificing prior identifies.
