AU'S E-DAY GIVES STUDENTS LOOK AT ENGINEERING CAREER

 

AUBURN -- Auburn University's Samuel Ginn College of Engineering will host as many as 2,000 students and their families on Feb. 26 for E-Day -- the college's annual showcase of its departments and programs.

E-Day is an open house during which middle, high school and junior college students can learn about all of the programs and opportunities offered by Auburn engineering.

"E-Day is the premier on-campus recruitment program for the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering," says Bob Karcher, director of the Office of Engineering Student Services. "Students who know they like subjects like math and science will find that E-Day shows them how they can put them to work. It gives us the opportunity to introduce them to the exciting world of engineering."

This year, E-Day will highlight computer science and software engineering. Three bachelor's degrees are offered by AU: computer science, software engineering, and wireless engineering.

AU was the first university in the Southeast to offer a degree in software engineering and first in the nation to offer a wireless engineering degree.

"Computer science and software graduates design, analyze and develop software for the computer systems and networks that power our world," said Karcher. "They find employment in both the private and public sector with industry, small business, and government agencies."

Other College of Engineering programs offer stimulating and rewarding careers in aerospace, biosystems, chemical, civil, electrical and computer, industrial and systems, materials, mechanical and textile engineering.

E-Day gives students an opportunity to speak one-on-one with Auburn students and faculty, view interactive exhibits and visit classes and laboratories.

They can also tour the Auburn campus and learn more about admissions, financial aid, and residence life.
