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. Engineering professors will describe the university’s chemical and biological, civil and environmental, electrical and computer, engineering science and mechanical engineering programs. Representatives of CSU-Pueblo also will describe their Industrial Engineering and Mechatronics engineering programs.

Current Colorado State 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.
