The UNO College of Engineering, in collaboration with Southeast Symposium for Contemporary Engineering Topics (SSCET), is proud to establish and offer the first 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 five parallel technical tracks providing solutions to contemporary engineering topics in electrical, naval, mechanical, and civil & environmental engineering. The five parallel tracks cover topics in (1) Engineering Education; (2) Energy; (3) Electric Power Systems; (4) Student Projects; and (5) Civil, Coastal, & Environmental Engineering by presenters from participating universities and industries. Participants can earn up to 6 Professional Development Hours.
While 2013 is the first year for establishment of UNO-EF, it also marks the fourth 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 plans 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.
