CEM Open House was a huge success

2015 Open House 3

This past Saturday, February 28, 2015, the UAF College of Engineering and Mines held its annual Engineering Open House for the local Fairbanks community. The event was a huge success thanks to all the hard work of our engineering student organizations and societies.

We had a tremendous turnout with over 1000 people attending the 4 hour event. Families who visited got to investigate different engineering fields- robotics, aerospace, civil, petroleum, and many others- through hands-on activities.

The event wraps up the 2015 National Engineers Week, an annual week dedicated to sharing how engineers make a difference and increase public knowledge about engineering.
