NJIT's Newark College of Engineering To Host Fall Career Day for High School Students

WHAT: Fall NCE Career Day for High School Students

WHO: Newark College of Engineering

WHEN: Friday, November 2, 2007 from 8 a.m. – 1 p.m.

WHERE: Campus Center Ballroom 

Newark College of Engineering (NCE) at NJIT will host once again its “Engineering Career Day.”  The program will offer high school students the chance to explore six diverse engineering fields, all on the same day on the NJIT campus.  Students can learn more about engineering specialties such as biomedical, chemical, civil and environmental, electrical and computer engineering; industrial and manufacturing and mechanical.

More than 30 New Jersey high schools are expected to attend the event.  Participants will be escorted around the campus by NCE staff and encouraged to meet with engineering students and faculty. In addition, a workshop series will run concurrently with student tours. The workshops will be geared toward helping both teachers and guidance counselors better understand engineering.  Professional development credits will be awarded.
