High School Conference by Society Women Engineers (February)

Each February, over 150 high school students from across Texas and Louisiana gather at Texas A&M University for a two-day glimpse of opportunities in engineering and the Texas A&M University College of Engineering. The conference is open to female and male high school students. On Friday, the first day of the conference, high school students attend engineering classes with current engineering students and participate in tours of research facilities on campus. At night, students are invited to dine at the scholarship banquet and hear from speakers such as engineering administration, corporate speakers, and the Texas A&M Yell Leaders. The following day, students choose 2-3 tours offered by individual engineering departments. In addition, a design competition is held to introduce students to the principles of team work and engineering problem solving. Companies often participate in the design process by providing case studies for students to solve. A program application is required. Please visit the web site for more information.

Grade Levels
