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.
Save the Date for Engineers Day 2021!
This year’s Engineers Day will be held Tuesday, October 19. Registration will open in early September for the annual event where future engineering students will have the opportunity to hear from current students and faculty, learn more about engineering, and participate in competitions including Quiz Bowl.
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.
