Colorado State University Invites High-School Students and Community to Learn About Engineering

Colorado high-school students, parents and community members can explore engineering majors and careers Oct. 17 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. at Colorado State University’s Engineering Careers Day. The event will be held in the Lory Student Center on campus.

Participants will view lab demonstrations, discuss engineering majors and careers with faculty, and learn about undergraduate study and life at Colorado State.

Colorado State engineering professors will describe the university’s bioresource and agricultural, chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, engineering science and mechanical engineering programs.

Afternoon panel discussions will give participants an opportunity to talk with current engineering students. In addition, a session geared primarily for women and minority students in engineering will be offered. Scholarships and the university’s financial aid program also will be discussed.

The event is free and registration can be done over the phone in advance or in person at 9 a.m. the day of the event in Room 228 Lory Student Center. An optional lunch will be available for $7. Those planning to buy the lunch should register in advance.
