Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science to host 4th annual open house

On Saturday, March 12, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science will host the fourth annual open house as part of National Engineering and Geoscience month. The open house is an opportunity for the public, potential students and their parents, kids and the media to learn what Memorial engineering has to offer.

Visitors will be greeted with information booths represented by various groups and departments associated with Memorial engineering. Come chat with representatives from the Engineering Undergraduate Student Society; Memorial Baja Team; the local chapter of Engineers Without Borders; Engineering Co-operative Education; Memorial Student Recruitment; the St. John’s Chapter of Tetra Society of North America; the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering and Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland and Labrador.

Tours of our unique laboratories will also be available. Get a close up look at our wave towing tank; machine shop; autonomous ocean systems laboratory; rescue craft simulator; structures laboratory; sand bed erosion facility, among others.

The ever popular, Nao, the faculty’s humanoid robot, will also be there and, as always, eager to talk about the cool world of Memorial engineering and what faculty and students work on as part of the program’s curriculum.

We hope to see you on March 12. The fun starts at 10 a.m. and runs to 2 p.m. in the S.J. Carew (Engineering) Building’s main lobby, 240 Prince Phillip Drive, Memorial University’s St. John’s campus.
