Engineering & Technology (E&T) Week 2022

This year’s Engineering & Technology (E&T) Week was a huge success beginning with Research Day, followed by Quiz Bowl, EXPO Day, Mystery Design and ending by a banquet that celebrated all of you!  I am so proud of the College faculty, staff, and students and how we all came together to make E&T week a great success.  Here are a few statistics from the week:

40 graduate posters and 28 undergraduate posters

25 graduate and undergraduate presentation applications
1188 registered visitors for EXPO Day
25 visiting industry and others who had exhibits and exciting challenges for our visitors and students
256 student volunteers to help throughout the week, but mainly on EXPO Day
37 judges in several categories

We received excellent feedback from our visitors. Students and parents were amazed with what our college and our students are accomplishing.    A special thank you to the faculty who came in to help on EXPO Day.  We needed you and you were there.

All in all, it was a great week, thank you for all your support.  Below, please find the list of winners in all categories.  Congratulations to the winners and to all competitors.  It was an impressive show of Cajun ingenuity throughout the week.
