Goodyear Working to Excite Students about Engineering
The University of Akron; Cleveland State University; Lockheed Martin; PPG, and A. Schulman are some of the 21 corporations and universities that have joined Goodyear to spread excitement about engineering within the greater Akron community through Engineering Career Day.
Six universities, including Northwestern University and The University of Akron, along with 16 Akron-area corporations will have representatives present for an informational fair, panel discussions and hands-on demonstrations to help students learn about careers in engineering.
Students will rotate through a series of panel presentations and demonstrations from local organizations, which include hands-on activities requiring use of engineering acumen, all culminating in an end-of-day "engineering challenge," as the top four student teams compete for points. The day will end with the announcement of scholarship winners made by Jean-Claude Kihn, Goodyear's Chief Technical Officer, and Dr. George Haritos, Dean of the University of Akron's College of Engineering. Winners of the hands-on activity, engineering challenge and grant money will be announced.
