NJSPE Educational Foundation hosted the 51st annual Engineering Career Day on Wednesday, March 14, 2018.  This program was held at the Rutgers College of Engineering on the Busch Campus in Piscataway, NJ and was well attended. The Engineering Career Day is organized as a public service to high school students to introduce them to career opportunities available in engineering. This program is supported by corporate sponsors, public authorities, local colleges and universities.  Mike Testa, PE, OCSPE Past President was in charge of organizing the event; some volunteers from OCSPE along with our Past President, Mark Rohmeyer, PE, helped Mr. Testa put together this event.  We extend our gratitude to Mr. Testa and OCSPE volunteers for their efforts!  Photos from this event are located in the Photo Slideshow on this page.

We hope to see your high school next year! Please reach out to us for more information: Mark Rohmeyer, P.E. at mrohmeyer@tandmassociates.com
