Engineering Open House planned for October 14
In an effort to increase interest and understanding in engineering, Penn State Wilkes-Barre will host an Engineering Open House on Friday, October 14, 2005 at the Bell Atlantic Center for Technology on the campus in Lehman. High school students will have the opportunity to learn about various disciplines of engineering including aerospace, architectural, civil, environmental, electrical, mechanical, surveying, and more.
Highlighting the program is an afternoon on-site visit to a local engineering firm where students can experience the day-to-day activities of engineers working in the field. Students can choose to visit one of the following companies: Borton-Lawson Engineering, Commonwealth Telephone, Quad Three, The Architecture & Engineering Group, or Martin & Rogers. Lunch will be provided.
Penn State Wilkes-Barre offers baccalaureate degree programs in Electrical Engineering Technology and Surveying Engineering and associate degree programs in Electrical Engineering Technology, Surveying Technology and Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology. A new concurrent degree in Surveying Engineering/Civil Engineering has recently been developed, requiring ten semesters of study, six at Penn State Wilkes-Barre and four at University Park. Upon completion of the program, a B.S. in Surveying Engineering & and a B.S. in Civil Engineering are awarded by Penn State's College of Engineering. Students can also complete the first two years of many of the baccalaureate engineering degrees at the Wilkes-Barre campus, then complete their degree at another location, including University Park.
