Engineering Open House surpasses expectations
In an effort to increase interest and understanding of the various disciplines of engineering, Penn State Wilkes-Barre recently hosted its annual Engineering Open House. Over 100 students from twenty-one high schools attended, including one student who traveled from Long Island, NY.
Through a series of information sessions, students got an overview of the various disciplines of engineering including aerospace, architectural, civil, environmental, electrical, mechanical, surveying, and more. Highlighting the program were on-site visits to a local engineering firms where students witnessed the day-to-day activities of engineers working in the field.
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 bachelor's degree program 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.
