February 18, 2009

UNM's Electrical & Computer Engineering Department (ECE) will hold its annual spring pre-college Open House on Wednesday, Feb. 24, from 4 to 7 p.m. The event is open to high school juniors and seniors and their parents and teachers.

Topics will include scholarship deadlines, support available to students, job outlooks, the research focus areas in ECE@UNM, and a chance to see some of the cutting‑edge research that's going on in labs that are not usually open to the public.

Visitors can drop in at ECE's lobby between 4 and 6 p.m. for self-guided lab tours. At about 6 p.m. there will be a brief, informative presentation and Q&A. There will be a prize drawing open to high‑school juniors and seniors who attend.

Individuals who plan to attend should preregister at the event Web site,http://excel.ece.unm.edu/welcome/, which also includes information about the event and maps to the ECE building and of the UNM campus.
