This March, in partnership with the Admissions Office, the College sponsored a CECS Visit Day. Coordinated by Mechanical Engineering Department Head Dr. Gary McDonald, the Visit Day featured a tour of the College and panel presentations by faculty and students for incoming freshman prospective students who have indicated engineering or computer science as their potential majors. The students and their families spent an informative and enjoyable afternoon learning about the curriculum, student organizations, research initiatives, and other activities of the College.
CECS ChemE alumnus and Chattem Chemical executive Jason Allen and Dr. Frank Jones, Chemical Engineering Professor, coordinated a visit to the College by 60 North Alabama high School sophomores, juniors, and seniors and their teachers. During their visit, the participants toured the College’s labs, learned about the various majors offered, and saw a demonstration by members of the ChemE Car Team. The ChemE Car Team recently took first place in the poster competition in the American Institute of Chemical Engineering 2016 Southern Regional Student Conference held in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
