Welcome to Vol State Engineering Day!
Engineering Day at Vol State is a one-day conference for 6th - 9th grade students who are interested in knowing more about engineering careers and jobs. We are partnering with engineering people from industry and research institutes to offer you workshops with hands-on activities in all areas of engineering, and engineer role models to give you a glimpse of what engineering careers and jobs look like.
Engineering has become one of the most in-demand and fastest-growing career opportunities. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) prepares employment projections for 18 engineering occupations in this website. Nearly 140,000 new jobs are expected for engineers over the 2016–26 decade. “And in 2016, engineers had a median annual wage of $91,010—more than twice the median wage for all workers.” According to the BLS publication.
Vol State has a long tradition of commitment to excellence in the training of engineering students. We offer Tennessee Transfer Pathway (TTP) degrees in Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical engineering, and Computer Science majors, and Mechatronics Technology degrees and certificates. Our students are well prepared for jobs or have transferred smoothly to all Tennessee public universities offering a Baccalaureate degree in these majors!
Come join our Vol State Engineering Day and start thinking about Engineering and your future!
