Engineering Academic Days

2017 Engineering Academic Days

Minnesota State University, Mankato
Centennial Student Ballroom
Oct. 16th, Oct. 30th, and Nov. 6th @ 9:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

The main mission of the Engineering Academic Days is to encourage and motivate high school students to pursue educational opportunities in the area of engineering and to increase their access to higher education. Each day focuses on a traditionally underrepresented population in engineering and STEM careers: African American, Latino, and females. Each event will provide students with an opportunity to meet professionals in the field of engineering and familiarize them with a post-secondary institution like Minnesota State University, Mankato. The events will include a college preparation session, keynote speaker, a tour, hands-on demonstrations, and highlights of the engineering profession.

October 16th – African American Engineering Academic Day
October 30th – Girls Explore STEM Academic Day
November 6th – Latino Engineering Academic Day
