Bits, Bytes, Volts, and More: Computing, Electronics and Systems

Our world is changing at an accelerated rate due to introduction of digital technology. Have you ever wondered what goes into the design of new electronic gadgets, the software that drives them, and the massive infrastructure that supports them? On this session we will look at Lehigh's extensive work in the fields of electronics, computing and systems engineering. If you're interested in diving head first into the information age, come see what we have to offer.

The Large to Small of Engineering

Engineering comes in all shapes and sizes – literally. Engineering innovation occurs at scales ranging from the atomic level to the mega-structural level. You will learn about the fundamental building blocks of microscopic engineering – and then see how engineers envision, design, test, and deploy large structures. You will also learn about mechanical devices that operate on scales in between. Spanning 12 orders of magnitude, the session provides a glimpse of nano-engineering as well as our facilities for testing bridges and large building systems. If you are interested in engineering the very large or the very small – or anywhere in between – this tour is for you.

Engineering Your Health and Fueling your Life

While bioengineering is a blossoming field combining the fundamentals of engineering with the science of biology, Lehigh’s chemical engineering program has a 100+ year tradition of innovation in energy and process design.
