DAVENPORT, Iowa—High school and community college students considering a career in engineering can enjoy pizza—and the chance to visit with engineering professionals, faculty and students. "Exploring Engineering" will take place Thursday, Nov. 1, beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the Rogalski Center, located at the corner of Ripley and Lombard Streets, one block west of Harrison Street in Davenport.

The event is free and open to the public and students may bring a friend, parent or guardian. Reservations are required and may be made by emailing engineering@sau.edu, or calling 563/333-6485.

St. Ambrose University currently offers two engineering programs:

The Industrial Engineering degree program prepares students to plan, design and supervise the installation of operational systems. Industrial engineers enjoy careers in industry, business, government, education, health care and the military, working in production, marketing, procurement, personnel and product design.

Mechanical Engineering is the broadest discipline in engineering and utilizes a combination of human, material and economic resources to provide solutions to problems faced in society. As an applied science, mechanical engineering is focused on the design, development, manufacture, management and control of engineering systems.
