Women interested in exploring career opportunities in engineering and technology are invited to register for the University of Colorado at Boulder's annual "Engineering Career Day for Women" on Saturday, March 6.
The all-day program will be held on the Boulder campus from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will introduce high school and community college students to the field of engineering through hands-on activities. Participants also will meet women who study and work in the field of engineering, and will tour the CU-Boulder campus with college students.
Engineering Career Day for Women is presented by the Women in Engineering Program. Most sessions will be held in the Engineering Center, including the Integrated Teaching and Learning Laboratory, the college's state-of-the-art experiential learning facility, and the new Discovery Learning Center. Attendees will meet current students and professional engineers, and will participate in demonstrations and activities throughout the college.
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.
Cost of the program is $10 per person and includes materials, a continental breakfast and lunch. Registration is requested by Feb. 21. For more information and registration, go to www.colorado.edu/engineering or call (303) 492-0083.
