Students will have an opportunity to tour the campus and meet department faculty and graduate students. They will spend the afternoon with departments of their choice in a variety of engineering disciplines, including:

The Discover program includes transportation to and from the University of Pittsburgh, meals, a dinner reception, and overnight accommodations.
