Auburn’s Samuel Ginn College of Engineering hosting annual E-Day

AUBURN – More than 2,000 middle and high school students considering a career in engineering will converge on the new Auburn University Student Center for the Samuel Ginn College of Engineering’s annual E-Day event, Friday, Feb. 27, from 8 a.m. to noon.

Potential Auburn students and their families will learn about the College of Engineering through interactive exhibits, visits to classrooms and laboratories and one-on-one chats with engineering students and faculty. They will also have opportunities to learn about admissions, scholarships, financial aid and residence life.

The college offers engineering degree programs in aerospace, biosystems, chemical, civil, materials, mechanical, industrial, computer science, electrical and software engineering. Other degree programs include polymer and fiber engineering and industrial and systems engineering. On E-Day, representatives of all of these programs will be available to provide information about their degrees.

Each year, one program is highlighted at the E-Day event. This year’s featured program is the new polymer and fiber engineering program.

“We are really looking forward to showcasing this exciting and fast growing program,” said Student Services Coordinator Julia Freeman. “We have lots of fun, hands-on activities planned for the students.”
