100 days and counting!

To mark 100 days until graduation and to provide all the necessary information to graduating seniors, a Countdown to Cap and Gown Luncheon will be held on Friday, January 28. The luncheon will include remarks from Chancellor Dr. Dale Jones and will provide important details from the offices of the Registrar, Academic Affairs, Career Services, Bookstore, Financial Aid, and the Penn State Wilkes-Barre Alumni Society. All graduating seniors are expected to attend.

Although engineering holds plenty of opportunities, only 14 percent of engineers are women and just 22 percent of bachelor’s degrees in engineering were earned by women in 2018.

Greg Ellsworth, a fourth-year student at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, has found working with engineering faculty on projects outside the classroom to be a benefit for the career he plans to undertake in surveying engineering.
