The UNO College of Engineering, in collaboration with Southeast Symposium for Contemporary Engineering Topics (SSCET), is proud to offer the second UNO Engineering Forum (UNO-EF) at the University of New Orleans Research & Technology Park on September 19, 2014. The events will be held concurrently in Lindy C. Boggs Conference Center and offer seven parallel technical tracks providing solutions to contemporary engineering topics in electrical, naval, mechanical, civil & environmental, management, and systems engineering. The seven parallel tracks cover topics in (1) Power Systems (2) Civil/Coastal & Environmental; (3) Mechanical and Naval Architecture; (4) Electrical and Computer; (5) Student Projects; (6) Engineering Management and Systems Engineering Innovation; and (7) Energy and Microelectronics by presenters from participating universities and industries. Participants can earn up to 6 Professional Development Hours.
While 2014 is the second year form establishment of UNO-EF, it also marks the fifth annual SSCET at the UNO R&T Park with a very successful record of bringing together a broad range of industry sponsors, universities represented by students and faculty, practicing engineers and consultants, and UNO Engineering alumni. We anticipate the collaborative effort to surpass our past records measured by the number of sponsors, presentations, student and practicing engineer interactions, exhibitions, and well-known keynote and lunch speakers. The event, which includes breakfast, lunch, coffee breaks and the presentation material, will begin at 8:00 AM with the UNO President, Dr. Peter J. Fos, welcoming the participants, and will end at 4:30 PM. The UNO College of Engineering may decide to host its alumni at the annual Award Ceremony following the UNO-EF at the UNO Alumni and Visitor Center Ballroom at 6:00 PM.
