Women interested in exploring career opportunities in math, science, engineering and technology are invited to register for the University of Colorado at Boulder's annual "Engineering Career Day for Women" on Saturday, March 12.
The program, which runs from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., is free and open to women in high school or community college. Participants will learn about different majors and visit laboratories for demonstrations of engineering and technology, including projects in aerospace engineering, fluid dynamics, computer science and other areas.
Participants will meet a variety of dynamic women who study and work in the field of engineering. They also will have the opportunity to learn about student organizations and tour the CU-Boulder campus with college students serving as guides.
Separate informational sessions will be offered for parents, teachers and counselors who want to learn what CU-Boulder has to offer and how to encourage young women to pursue engineering as a career.
Engineering Career Day for Women is presented by the Women in Engineering Program in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Activities will be held in the Engineering Center Complex, which includes the Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory, an award-winning experiential learning laboratory, and the Discovery Learning Center, a state-of-the-art facility focusing on undergraduate research.
The program includes continental breakfast and lunch for all participants at no cost. Registration is requested by March 4. For more information and online registration go to http://engineering.colorado.edu/WIEP/careerday.html or call (303) 492-0083.
