For A Day Program - 2014
The Fenn Academy at Cleveland State University’s Washkewicz College of Engineering, in partnership with its forty-four member high schools and sponsoring engineering organizations, holds its annual Engineer For A Day job shadowing program during National Engineers Week. This event enables students to meet local engineers and to experience various engineering fields. Since 1999, more than 900 students have participated in this activity.
Pre-registered students from Fenn Academy high schools are able to apply through January 24, 2014. The actual job shadowing activity will take place at assigned locations on Friday, February 21, 2014.

Students are responsible for making their own transportation arrangements. Students may not accept rides from sponsors due to safety and legal concerns. In some cases, students may have to pay for parking and lunch at the sponsoring organization. Please check with your sponsor for details by calling them after you attend the orientation session.
