ECS Open House and ECS Joint Council Exposition
Please join us for the annual College of Engineering and Computer Science Open House as well as the Engineering & Computer Science Exposition immediately afterwards. The event is free to the public and will take place on March 11, 2017. Check in is at 9:30 AM in the University Union Ballroom. After a welcome by our dean, Dr. Lorenzo Smith, attendants will have the opportunity to tour our labs and departments and ask questions about majors. Incoming students can also sign up and take an early math diagnostic test. The test is designed to give them the opportunity to save both time and money by getting them ready for placement in engineering math courses. While incoming students are taking the exam, parents can attend an information session on a day in the life of an ECS student to help them understand what it takes to be a successful ECS student.
Directly following the Open House, the ECS Expo features the best and brightest extracurricular projects of students and student clubs from the College of Engineering and Computer Science. This event showcases what our engineering clubs have accomplished in the past year, and what they have to offer ECS students.

Space: The Final Frontier - Lecture and Panel Discussion
Sac State is reaching for the stars with “Space: The Final Frontier,” Monday, Feb. 27, in the University Union Ballroom. The two-part forum – a lecture and a panel discussion – is geared toward high school and college students but is free and open to all.
“We want to introduce students to the technology that enabled humans to make the incredible leap from Earth to the moon, with a probable next stop at Mars,” says Jaime White, director of Sacramento State’s MESA (Mathematics, Engineering, and Science Achievement) program.
“They will walk away with a better understanding of why space exploration is significant and, perhaps, why Earth is so important to preserve and protect.”
“Space: The Final Frontier” begins at 2 p.m. with an hourlong talk by Firouz Naderi, former director of solar system exploration at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena. His topic is “How Did Us Humans Come To Be on Planet Earth, and What Is in Store for Us?” Naderi managed or supervised numerous projects during his 36-year career with NASA, including JPL’s robotic solar system mission to Jupiter’s moon Europa, the Cassini orbiter at Saturn, and the Dawn spacecraft at the asteroid Vesta. When he retired from the JPL, NASA announced that the asteroid formerly known as (5515) 1989 EL1 would be renamed “Naderi.”
Naderi will join five additional experts from 5 to 7 p.m. to discuss the future of U.S. space exploration. Lorenzo Smith, Dean of the College of Engineering and Computer Science, will moderate.
