Engineering Speaks


A Columbia University engineer will come to your school to speak directly to students. Typically, engineers tell a “life story” and explain their personal path, including passions, education, current work, etc. Groups can range from a single class to large groups and Outreach Programs staff accompanies the speaker to the school.
