Open house for prospec­tive en­gi­neer­ing stu­dents at UPEI

Journal Pioneer - - COMMUNITY - news­room@jour­nal­pi­

The UPEI School of Sus­tain­able De­sign En­gi­neer­ing is host­ing an open house for prospec­tive stu­dents and their par­ents.

It will pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for high school stu­dents to ex­plore a fu­ture-fo­cused en­gi­neer­ing de­gree that leads to a mul­ti­tude of ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The open house will be held on Nov. 17 from noon to 3 p.m. when fac­ulty and staff will be show­cas­ing UPEI’s unique pro­gram through pre­sen­ta­tions and tours of the fa­cil­ity. Stu­dents will learn about sus­tain­able de­sign and how it is about solv­ing real prob­lems for real clients, broad­en­ing hori­zons with global ex­pe­ri­ences and con­nect­ing with the com­mu­nity and im­prov­ing the en­vi­ron­ment.

Cur­rent stu­dent projects will be on dis­play, and first-year stu­dents will be com­pet­ing in the School of Sus­tain­able De­sign En­gi­neer­ing con­course with the grav­i­ta­tional-pow­ered cars they have cre­ated, de­signed, and built. Ad­mis­sions staff will be on­site to an­swer any ap­pli­ca­tion-re­lated ques­tions.
