The 2018 Engineering & Technology Expo is on
Wednesday, March 7th
The UL College of Engineering and the UL Student Chapter of the Louisiana Engineering Society, LES, would like to invite you to our annual Engineering and Technology Expo day on Wednesday, March 7, 2018! We are looking for exhibitors, volunteers, and sponsors for this event. This E&T Expo is an opportunity for potential students to tour UL’s College of Engineering and get a “close up” look at what UL has to offer in the fields of engineering and technology. It is also a great opportunity to for them to learn about possible careers, which is where our industry participants help out. Last year we hosted over 2,300 students, parents and teachers along with a few hundred volunteers and industry participants.
