PITT ENGINEERING OPPORTUNITY
The University of Pittsburgh's chapter of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) invites all freshmen, sophomore, junior and senior, high school students to attend High School Engineering Day (HSED) on Saturday, March 24th , 2018 from 9:00 AM to 2:45 PM. Registration will close March 21st, 2018 at 11:00 PM. Our mission for this event is to introduce students to the different engineering disciplines to help them figure out what type of engineer they might want to be. The hope is that at the end of the event the students will have a better idea of what type of engineering they might want to study! This event will feature: 1) Lab tours of labs within Pitt Engineering, 2) Major Panels by Pitt SWE students, and 3) Talks from professional engineers. Pitt is very excited to bring this event to you as they have put together some great sessions to provide an inside scoop of what engineering is like at the college level! To register, please visit the Eventbrite Registration form here or visit www.pitt.edu/~pittswe and look for the link under 'Events.' The link is also included in the flyer. For questions or concerns, please contact Sydney Winner (High School Outreach Chair) at email@example.com.
