Attention, HS Juniors!

Are you learning that Math & Science is becoming more and more interesting to you?  Have you been told that you “should look into engineering?” Do you want to learn whether engineering or computer science is where you want to apply?

If any of the above is true, I hope you will join me as I guest-host a webinar with CollegeWise on Wednesday, May 8th.  CollegeWise is an educational counseling service that aims to take the stress out of the college admission process.  In addition to their paid college counseling services, they also offer a number of free seminars related to helping families approach college admission and the application process.

Webinar – Engineering Your Future: Careers in STEM
Wednesday, May 8, 2019
5:00PM – 6:30PM

Register for the Webinar



My webinar will cover where STEM programs can lead you in college. We will discuss our engineering undergraduate programs and aim to demystify the differences between myriad engineering academic areas as well as cover how one may best prepare for particular professional futures.

Want to work at Apple?  Need to prepare for that job at SpaceX?  Which major (if any) is the best path?  We will cover as much as the hour allows and work to get you the information you need as you go about applying to engineering programs nationwide.
