College/ Enrichment Events

If you are interested in a career in the STEM industry, make plans to attend these virtual informational sessions through the American Nuclear Society SRS.

The American Nuclear Society (ANS) Savannah River Section is once again hosting Zoom sessions with faculty and
alums from Southeastern College of Engineering Departments. Tonight’s session features the University of South Carolina and tomorrow’s session is with the University of Tennessee.  Each session begins at 6:30 PM and in general lasts about one hour.
 
Last week featured Georgia Tech and North Carolina State, and next Monday, October 25th will discuss the University of Florida.  Sessions are recorded, and edited for access to those students who may have missed the live Zoom.
 
Although College Night is returning to the CSRA in early November as a virtual event, our virtual event is tailored to students and parents looking for engineering opportunities at Southeastern universities.  The one-hour session begins with a STEM faculty member presenting an introduction to the university and their engineering department, discussion on their research area and is followed by remarks from the alum on highlights of the school, their experience while attending, and a brief overview on what they are doing now in their work in the Aiken-Augusta-Columbia area.
 
The two talks are then followed by a Question and Answer session open to all attendees (students, parents, etc.).  The sessions are designed especially for high school seniors, parents, and faculty members interested in the first-year experience at a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) University in the Southeast. We also save time for discussion of research options for undergraduate and
first-year grad students.  An ANS SR team manages the Zoom session and oversees the Q&A. Please feel free to join us and ask faculty members and alums of major engineering departments in the Southeast your questions.
