Lone Star College-Kingwood will host a transfer fair for anyone interested in pursuing a career in the engineering field.
The free virtual fair will take place Nov. 19 from 4-7:30 p.m. via WebEx: bit.ly/2TS2Eu7. Colleges and universities across the state will provide information on their engineering programs and answer audiences’ questions regarding requirements, registration and possible career opportunities after graduation. This event is open to the community.
“The purpose of the event is to introduce high school and college students to various engineering programs offered at area four-year universities. We want to encourage them to further their education once they leave LSC-Kingwood,” said Dr. Jamie Turner, an engineering professor.
Each program has a 30-minute time slot to present, with individual breakout rooms available for additional conversations following each presentation. Attendees can attend as many sessions as possible that interest them. Starting at 4 p.m., the college representatives will present in the following order: Stephen F. Austin State University, The University of Texas at San Antonio, Texas Tech University, University of Houston, Lamar University, Texas A&M University at Galveston, Texas A&M University-Kingsville, and The University of Texas at Tyler.
At 8 p.m., the event host will make concluding remarks and answer questions about the Lone Star College engineering programs.
“It is not always feasible to visit a college or university campus. We created this event to assist students in their exploration of some of the engineering programs in our area,” said Nicole Foley, an academic advisor in the Math, Education, Engineering and Student Success (MEES) Division at LSC-Kingwood.
