NIU engineering open house to offer hands-on experiences

DeKALB – Students and their parents can see a live 3D printer in action, watch a wind tunnel in operation and have a chance to tour a 100 level clean lab during the College of Engineering and Engineering Technology’s Open House at Northern Illinois University 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sat. Feb. 29.

Tours of the college’s three facilities and its 40 research and teaching labs will be provided, and faculty, students and advisors will be on hand to talk about degree options, transfer information and admissions. CEET emphasizes hands-on experience for students, according to a news release, and as soon as they are enrolled, students can start to apply what they’re learning in the classroom in labs and as participants in the 20 student organizations and clubs.
