Summer Program at Colorado State University Broadens Career Horizons for High-School Students

Colorado State University’s Department of Manufacturing Technology and Construction Management will host a week-long summer exploration program for high-school students who are interested in careers in manufacturing, construction and technology education.

The "Career Horizons 2000" program will include lectures and presentations by faculty and students in the Department of Manufacturing and Construction Management, workshops in basic building design and materials, individual and group projects supervised by faculty members and a review and critique of projects. One full day will be devoted to a field trip during which participants will visit professional manufacturing and construction offices. Students will stay in a university residence hall, will take a tour of the Colorado State University campus and will have access to the student recreational facility.

The program begins June 18 and will run through June 24. Applicants should be high-school students who have interest in manufacturing, construction or technology education as a career. Scholarships are available to attend the program, but space is limited.

The Department of Manufacturing Technology and Construction Management is part of the College of Applied Human Sciences at Colorado State.
