Each October, the college hosts Engineers Day, a tradition going back more than 100 years. Undergraduate engineering classes are dismissed for one day to allow university students and faculty to spend time interacting with hundreds of potential UT engineering students from high schools and community colleges across the region.
Engineers Day is going virtual!
This year’s Engineers Day will be held Thursday, October 29. The event has been moved to a virtual platform to ensure the health and safety of our students and all our guests.
In October 2019, more than 1,900 students from nearly 70 different high schools (and some home schoolers) traveled to UT to explore and learn about the various aspects of engineering through discussions, project demonstrations, and exhibits prepared by UT engineering student clubs and societies. Participants experienced an overview of the different engineering disciplines and saw examples of how an engineer’s work impacts daily life. It is our hope that these students will be inspired by the ever-growing field of engineering.
