Engineering Day in the College of Engineering at SIU Carbondale started in 1981 as part of the National Engineers Week. For the event, we invite area high school students to participate in Mind Game activities sponsored by our registered student organizations. Each activity is designed to challenge students to develop team building and problem solving skills critical to the profession of engineering. Dates for Engineering Week are determined by the National Society of Professional Engineers (NSPE). The Engineering Day event is determined by the College of Engineering and Engineering Student Council, within the week designated by NSPE each year.
