Feb. 7, 2012 —The School of Natural Sciences, Mathematics and Engineering at California State University, Bakersfield is hosting an open house for local high school seniors. The open house will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9, in the CSUB Student Union Multipurpose Room, 9001 Stockdale Highway. The event is free and open to the public with free parking in Lot K.
The annual event is intended for high school seniors who are interested in a degree in science, technology, engineering or mathematics. Represented programs include biology, biochemistry, computer sciences, computer engineering, geology, mathematics, nursing, physics, pre-medical, and pre-engineering.
High school seniors and their families are invited to listen to faculty discuss the available programs, tour CSUB's state-of-the-art teaching and research laboratories, and enjoy a dessert reception while interacting with CSUB staff, faculty and students. Students are encouraged to bring a high school transcript (unofficial is ok) so that they can apply for admission to CSUB and have their transcripts evaluated for admission that night.
"The NSME Open House is one of the many ways Kern County high school students can learn about the wonderful opportunities available to them at CSUB in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. We hope that all students and their families will be able to take advantage of this opportunity," said NSME Associate Dean, Dr. Kamel Haddad.
