In celebration of National Engineers Week, known as E-week, The University of Texas at El Paso’s College of Engineering will host a series of events and activities starting Monday, Feb. 20, 2017.

College tours will kick off the E- week celebration with students from Parkland High School, Transmountain Early College High School, Chapin High School Pre-Engineering Magnet Program and Montwood High School visiting UTEP’s engineering facilities.

Starting Tuesday, Feb. 21, activities will include an interactive vehicle display. General Motors will display a 2017 Stingray Corvette and a 2017 Bolt.

“General Motors is delighted to participate in Engineering Week,” said Rachel Wood, university relations strategist at GM. “We are excited to share some of our latest products with you. UTEP Miners will be a part of the next generation of GM employees who will continue to push the boundaries of what can be accomplished in the automotive industry.”

GM representatives also will deliver a series of panel discussions and presentations.

Through the college’s standing partnership with Lockheed Martin, the company will again bring their hands-on jet simulators to campus. Students will have the opportunity to interact with engineers from Lockheed Martin and test the capabilities of the simulators.
