Colorado high school students, their parents and community members can learn about engineering majors and careers at Colorado State University’s Engineering Exploration Day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Feb 11. The informative event, which is free and open to the public, will be in the Lory Student Center on Colorado State’s Fort Collins campus, with the opening session taking place in the Engineering Building Auditorium.

Engineering Exploration Day participants view laboratory demonstrations including robotics and electronics, discuss engineering majors and careers with faculty and students and learn about undergraduate life at Colorado State. Colorado State engineering professors will describe the university’s chemical and biological, civil and environmental, electrical and computer, engineering science and mechanical engineering programs. Representatives of Colorado State University-Pueblo will also be on hand to describe their Industrial Engineering and Mechatronics Engineering programs.

Engineering students will share their experiences and answer participants’ questions in the afternoon. Additionally, 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.
