UA Engineering Phoenix Roadshow Travels to ChandlerBy Steve Delgado - February 22, 2012, 11:41 am
It's time for the ambassadors and student clubs of the University of Arizona College of Engineering to make their annual trek north to the Phoenix area to show some of the best of engineering student life and academics at the UA.
The annual UA Engineering Phoenix Roadshow is Saturday, March 3, at Hamilton High School in Chandler, Arizona. The Roadshow is a chance for Phoenix area high school students to learn firsthand about UA engineering degree programs, academic resources and student life by meeting and chatting with current UA engineering students.
"The Roadshow is an exciting way to bring the innovation, excitement and creativity of UA Engineering to Phoenix," says Rebecca Myren, assistant director of student recruitment and retention at the University of Arizona College of Engineering. "Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the student experience, explore our 13 engineering majors, and enjoy demonstrations by the aerial robotics team, the Society of Automotive Engineers Baja Racing team, and many others," Myren said.
In 2011, the Phoenix Roadshow hosted over 200 students and parents, who walked the outdoor expo of engineering student clubs and organizations, and attended indoor presentations on the assorted engineering majors available at the University of Arizona. This year, recruiters and current students are available to talk about what prospective engineers should be doing in high school right now to prepare for engineering studies at the university level.
The UA Engineering student organizations scheduled to appear at the 2012 Phoenix Roadshow include:
UA Baja Racing
Information on scholarships, financial aid, and how and when to apply to the University of Arizona will be available to attendees of this year's UA Engineering Phoenix Roadshow. The event is free, and attendees are asked to register in advance at www.engineering.arizona.edu/phx
