Middle and high school students considering a career in engineering can learn about Auburn University's College of Engineering at the annual E-Day event on Friday, Feb. 27, from 8 a.m. to noon, in the new Auburn University Student Center.
Through interactive exhibits, visits to classrooms and laboratories and one-on-one chats with engineering students and faculty, potential engineering students and their families can learn about what Auburn University's Samuel Ginn College of Engineering has to offer. While at Auburn, prospective students can also learn about admissions, scholarships, financial aid and residence life.
The college offers engineering degree programs in aerospace, biosystems, chemical, civil, computer science and software, electrical and computer, industrial and systems, materials, mechanical, polymer and fiber and wireless engineering. On E-Day, representatives of all of these programs will be available to provide information about their degrees.
Each year, one program is highlighted. This year's featured department is a new one - polymer and fiber engineering. "We are really looking forward to showcasing this exciting and fast growing program," says student services coordinator Julia Freeman. "We have lots of fun, hands-on activities planned for the students."
