Engineering Exploration Day

Fall 2020

The Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering invites high school students, transfer students, their families, and community members to explore engineering majors and careers. The event is free of charge and open to the public.

Explore your engineering future

Over the course of the day you’ll hear from engineering professors and current students who will guide you in exploring engineering majors. You will also have the opportunity to tour engineering facilities and our residential community to experience what it’s like to be a student.

By the end of the day, you’ll learn how our students improve the quality of our environment, positively impact human health, and design alternative energy sources, all working towards making the world a better place.

Walk-Ins are welcome at the Lory Student Center the day of the event.
