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

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