As winter draws to a close, engineering students at the University Illinois at Urbana-Champaign set aside a weekend to show off what they have been working on all year long. Students from every discipline of engineering set up exhibits to remind the general public of the role that science plays in everyday life and to show the difference that technology will make in the future. Sponsoring awards and competitions, corporations that push the boundaries of science today also make an appearance. Primary and secondary schools also bring young students in hopes of passing the spirit of engineering to the next generation. When our young innovators meet the experienced engineers they strive to become and the children following in their footsteps, Engineering Open House begins.
Engineering Open House is an annual student-led event featuring two days of exciting exhibits and captivating competitions that showcase the talent and ingenuity of engineering students. The exposition attracts thousands of visitors to the Illinois campus each year and stands as the largest event of its kind in the country. EOH brings together students, faculty, and corporate sponsors to feature cutting-edge innovation in the fields of science and technology.
Engineering Open House strives to create a more educated, science-oriented culture with the University of Illinois College of Engineering at the forefront of technological advancements. We aim to inspire the next generation of engineers and lay a foundation for engineering to become the key to solving future problems.
