Engineering speakers for High School Groups 



The School of Engineering at Christian Brothers University offers a variety of presentations suitable for high school students. These are available free of charge and cover a variety of topics related to engineering. We hope that these presentations will encourage students to pursue careers in engineering and science and to better understand the role of engineers in solving societal problems.

Speakers can visit area schools to speak to classes, clubs, etc., or you may bring small groups to the CBU campus for a talk and tour of the engineering laboratories.

To schedule a speaker, we encourage you to contact the faculty speaker directly at the phone number or email address provided; or if you prefer, contact the School of Engineering at (901) 321-3405 or engineering@cbu.edu.
