Commencement

It's your time to shine. The College of Engineering undergraduate convocation and graduate hooding ceremonies are now combined into a single event. Don't miss this exciting ceremony held each spring in the Dee Glen Smith Spectrum.

Commencement

Community Night

This event combines the fascinating science behind engineering with fun, hands-on activities that teach engineering principles. Come see how engineers inspire wonder by rolling around in a human Zorb Ball, launching mini rockets, or playing in the 3D sandbox.

Community Night

Engineering Extravaganza

Hosted by the Society of Women Engineers, this two-day event is for high school girls grades 911. Participants explore USU's engineering disciplines and learn what it's like to be an engineer. Parents are also welcome to attend. Registration is available online.

Pumpkin Toss

ASME Pumpkin Toss

The American Society of Mechanical Engineer's annual Pumpkin Toss combines fall, physics, and fun. The public is invited to watch as teams of engineering students from across Utah compete to hurl their pumpkins the farthest using a device called a trebuchet. These medieval machines toss heavy pumpkins in a tournament of distance, accuracy, and mechanical design. Food vendors on site.
