7:00 PM @ Stirling D

Abstract:

The Engineering Physics orientation session is an evening devoted to giving first year engineering students more information about the Engineering Physics Program at Queens. The evening will include an overview of the Engineering Physics program and its four options (Electrical, Materials, Mechanical and Computing), a survey of positions held by recent graduates, and a discussion of future prospects for graduates of the discipline. A recent graduate, Steve Leonard (Sci '94), will give a talk entitled "Life After EngPhys: From Black Holes to Opals to Drugs", describing his experience in engineering physics and his career path through graduate school and into industry.

Following these presentations, students will be guided through a tour of the undergraduate labs and given the opportunity to discuss the engineering physics program over refreshments with faculty and students.
