College of Engineering and Computer Science Open House

The Division of Engineering Student Services and Advising (DESSA) hosts a College Open House during the fall term each year. This event provides students with information about the programs that the College has to offer and showcases exciting student projects, such as the human-powered submarine and the formula Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) race car. Attendees have an opportunity to learn more about the services that DESSA offers – including free tutoring and scholarship and internship opportunities – and meet with advisors from each of the departments within the College.
