Colorado high school students, their parents and the community can learn about engineering majors and careers at Colorado State University’s Engineering Careers Explorations Day from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Feb. 21. The informative event, free and open to the public, will be held in the Lory Student Center on the Colorado State campus, with the opening session taking place next door in the Engineering Building Auditorium.
Engineering Careers Explorations Day participants will have opportunities to view laboratory tours and demonstrations including robotics and computer bridge design, discuss engineering majors and careers with faculty and students, and learn about undergraduate study life at Colorado State. Colorado State engineering professors will describe the civil, chemical, electrical and computer, environmental, engineering science and mechanical engineering programs.
Panel discussions will give participants an opportunity to talk with current engineering students and alumni. In addition, a session geared primarily for women and minority students in engineering will be offered. Scholarships, advising and financial aid will be discussed and participants may take dorm tours.
Additional details are available for students through their high school career counselors.
