Engineering to Honor High School Seniors in KC, Western Kansas

Thursday, November 1, 2007


The
University of Kansas School of Engineering will hold its annual Celebration of
Excellence and Diversity receptions in November in Wichita
and Kansas City.



The
events are designed to encourage high-achieving seniors from under-represented
minority groups to pursue degrees in engineering and computer science. Students invited to take part and their
parents will be able to meet representatives from the School of Engineering,
students in the KU School of Engineering and professionals in engineering and
computer science from the area.



High
school students who are African American, Hispanic or Native American will be
able to ask questions of KU Engineering students with similar backgrounds
during an Engineering Hawk Talk Panel at the event. In addition, the high
school students will learn about career opportunities in engineering,
engineering degree programs at KU, as well as scholarship information at the KU
School of Engineering. Attendees also will take part in a scholarship ceremony
that will award funds they can use toward tuition if they enroll in the KU
School of Engineering in fall 2008.

Wichita CED will begin at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 14, at Hawker Beechcraft,
9710 E. Central, Wichita, Kan. 61206.
