Information night will give future engineering students a chance to meet with engineers from a wide range of fields
For many future engineering students, choosing the right degree path can be confusing, especially when deciding between majors that may seem similar like Computer and Software engineering.
Helping students understand those differences and navigate the right path from college to career is the goal behind a new event at Dunwoody later this month.
The College will be hosting an Engineering Info Night from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. on Friday, April 29. The “So You Want to be an Engineer?” event will be a chance to meet engineers from a wide variety of fields and ask questions about careers and degree options.
An open-house style event, prospective students and their guests can drop in for informal meet and greets with engineers who have worked in sectors ranging from aerospace to medical. There will also be an opportunity to explore Dunwoody’s new Center for Engineering Excellence and see first-hand the hands-on projects current students are working on.
“We want this event to be an opportunity to help future engineers navigate the education landscape,” said School of Engineering Dean Bill Hudson. “We know that it can be confusing, so we wanted to make it easy and comfortable for people to ask questions of those who have been in the same position.”
Anyone interested in attending can register online at dunwoody.edu/engnight. The event will take place at the Center for Engineering Excellence on the Dunwoody campus, 818 Dunwoody Blvd, Minneapolis. Refreshments will be served.
About Dunwoody’s School of Engineering
Dunwoody offers four-year, Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer, Electrical, Mechanical, and Software engineering.
Coursework is project-integrated and experienced through hands-on creation and problem-solving. Unlike traditional engineering programs, at Dunwoody your engineering education begins your first semester.
Students benefit from small-class sizes, both in their major, general education, and elective classes, and all classes are taught by experienced faculty. Students are provided a laptop loaded with industry-standard software and tools, and have access to state-of-the-industry labs, shops, and maker spaces.
