Need help?

When you arrive, look for one of the Engineering Ambassadors. They will be wearing red polos (and black fleece jackets if it's cold).

They will hand you a brochure, which contains a map, and can direct you to the departments and exhibits you want to visit.

There also will be an Engineering Academic Affairs information booth in the lobby of Engineering Building III on Centennial Campus. Look for the booth to the right, after you enter the lobby.
