E-Days a big success for 2011, award winners announced

May 2, 2011

E-Days, a chance for Colorado State University engineering students to show off their hard work, drew hundreds of visitors to the Lory Student Center on April 15 - a day after the College of Engineering announced plans to start construction on a new 120,000-square-foot building at the southeast corner of Laurel Street and Meridian Avenue.

A student shows off a project an E-Days event at Colorado State UniversityThe E-Days event typically draws visitors from the community and industry, as well prospective students interested in exploring engineering. The community can interact with students and view a variety of engineering projects and demonstrations including award-winning project designs from chemical, civil, electrical and computer, and mechanical engineering.
