On Thursday, October 3rd, Penn State Wilkes-Barre's engineering department welcomes local high school students onto the Lehman campus for our 12th annual Engineering Open House. Held for many years at Penn State Wilkes-Barre, the Engineering Open House provides students who have an interest in an engineering field an opportunity to not only to hear what Penn State Wilkes-Barre has to offer but actually see what they can do with an engineering degree.
"The Engineering Open House is not your traditional campus tour. Students arrive in the morning and are split into groups for company visits," explains Director of Academic Affairs and Professor of Engineering, Dr. Albert Lozano-Nieto. "The companies selected for visits showcase what different types of engineers do in the real world and how their degrees are put to use."
Students will select one from among the following five local engineering firms to visit during this year's Engineering Open House: Architectural and Engineering Group, Borton-Lawson Engineering, Frontier Communications, Quad 3 Group, and Martin & Rogers (which will be conducted on campus). In addition, students interested in surveying will be able to see a surveying demonstration which will also be conducted on campus.
Penn State Wilkes-Barre provides a world-renowned university in a smaller, more personal setting. Dedicated staff and teachers have helped students of all ages since the campus' inception in 1916 and continue to provide excellent education and support. Penn State Wilkes-Barre boasts six bachelor's degrees (including one engineering degree and one engineering technology degree) and four associate's degrees (including one engineering technology degree), and the ability to start one of over 160 degrees at Penn State Wilkes-Barre and continue at another campus.
