During the week of October 18th (which we are calling “Major Decisions Week”) Engineering Advising is facilitating two events aimed at assisting first and second year Engineering students with choosing a major and better understanding the affiliation process. 

The first is the traditional:

Engineering Majors Information Fair

Not certain about which major to study?
**Names of all unaffiliated students who attend will be placed in a drawing for several door prizes!
