Engineering Lecture Series

Each spring and fall, the Engineering Department at SSU presents a series of colloquia on a wide range of engineering topics and trend of technologies. The talks are generally very high-level and designed for the general audience. The Engineering Colloquium established in Fall 2006 and it was initially sponsored by former Agilent Technologies (now Keysight Technologies) and local industries.

The colloquia are held from 4:30 - 5:30 p.m. every other Thursday in Salazar Hall, Room 2009A.
