Tech Day, Sept. 28, 2013

Tech Day is the University of Michigan College of Engineering's annual fall event that invites prospective college students and their parents to explore Michigan Engineering. Tech Day brings over 500 prospective students (and over 500 of their parents) together on campus. High school students in the 11th and 12th grades and prospective college transfer students are welcome to participate in a full day of scheduled events!  The EECS Dept., including Computer Science, offers a Dept. Highlight.  http://techday.engin.umich.edu/about_techday

Computer Science at U-M

We offer:

Comparison between Computer Science in Engineering (CoE) and Liberal Arts (LSA): http://www.eecs.umich.edu/eecs/undergraduate/cs_lsa_vs_engr.html

 

ECRC - Engineering Career Resource Center

* Career Fair Days in Sept. and Jan.

* Open to Computer Science Majors in Engineering and LSA (liberal arts).

gEECS - Girls in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science

* Open to Computer Science Majors in Engineering and LSA (liberal arts)

We are a student-run organization at the University of Michigan dedicated to encouraging the professional, academic, and social development of women in technology-related fields of study.Through a variety of social and professional events, we hope to contribute to an increase of women in EECS.  Great for mentoring and/or pen pals for Middle/High School females interested in Computer Science.  The two Faculty Advisors are U-M CSE Professors (both are females too)!

WISE - Women in Science and Engineering

Women are underrepresented in technology, engineering and mathematics and in some science fields at every level of post-secondary academics, as well as in related careers.  http://www.wise.umich.edu/wise/aboutus

* Other Universities/Colleges should have similar student organizations if you are interested in creating a relationship with your Middle/High School students.
