To help increase interest and understanding of engineering and technology, Penn State Wilkes-Barre will host an Engineering Open House on Friday, October 15, 2004 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, telecommunication, surveying, and more. Information on nanofabrication manufacturing technology, the newest associate degree major at the campus, will also be available.

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 and associate degree programs in Electrical Engineering Technology, Surveying Technology, Nanofabrication Manufacturing Technology, and Telecommunications Engineering Technology. Students can complete the first two years of many of Penn State’s baccalaureate engineering degrees at the Wilkes-Barre location, then complete their degree at another location, including University Park.
