Forum on engineering opportunities for Latino students

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Latino students in the Tucson area are getting a lesson on careers in engineering this morning.

More than 200 high school students from around Tucson will get an introduction to the kinds of careers they can have in the engineering industry. 

This event has been organized by U of A students from the Society of Professional Engineers.  The ultimate goal is to get Latino students excited about science, technology, engineering and math.  Their recruitment efforts are in response to the lack of Latino engineers in the industry. 

Today's event is sponsored by Raytheon Missile Systems and IBM.  Registration for the event begins at 7 a.m.
