Upcoming Events

Lincoln Campuses (City, East)


  • Discover Engineering Days

    The College of Engineering started Discover Engineering Day in 2001 to introduce 5th-8th grade students and their teachers to the various fields of engineering and the engineering programs offered at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The event is filled with hands-on activities that apply math, science and creative thinking skills. Approximately 400-500 students participate each year.

  • E2-Day: Biological Systems Engineering Department

    Come to Engineering Day (E2-Day) at UNL and learn about careers in Biological Systems Engineering and Agricultural Engineering. Meet professors and students working in these areas and see their research. Learn about degree programs and scholarships. E2-Day also includes hands-on activities and tours of the facilities. Lunch and free parking are provided.

  • E-Week -- Lincoln

    A tradition since 1913, E-Week recognizes and rewards engineers' accomplishments. Current students celebrate the end of the academic year by participating in the Quiz Bowl, Scavenger Hunt, Root Beer Float Night, and many other activities. The week culminates with the annual E-Week Open House in April, during which senior engineering students and graduate students display their research projects, corporate representatives host booths to promote their companies, and high school students partake in information sessions and hands-on activities that highlight the benefits of becoming an engineer.

  • N.U.B.E. Camp

    N.U.B.E. Camp is an overnight retreat at Camp Kitaki that gives new engineering students a head start in their transition to college. The camp provides incoming first-year students the opportunity to meet fellow classmates, faculty, and staff. There are a variety of social activities, interactive team building, and important information given by current students, faculty, and staff. The camp is open to students from the Lincoln and Omaha campuses.

  • Shadow Days

    Student Shadow Days at the College of Engineering provide an opportunity for high school students to shadow one of our current students (in your area of interest) for the day. This is a great way for you to experience what it's like being a student at Nebraska Engineering on our Lincoln or Omaha campuses.

  • TEAMS (Tests of Engineering Aptitude, Mathematics and Science)

    This competition is designed for high school students across the United States as part of Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS) and focuses on the areas of engineering, mathematics, science, and other related technical fields. The one-day open note and open discussion competition includes a multiple choice test and an essay portion. Schools from across Nebraska participate each year

  • WIIE (Women Interested In Engineering Day)

    The annual Women Interested in Engineering Day invites females in grades 9-12 in October to learn about the dynamic opportunities available in engineering and construction management. The event is open to any students in 9-12 grade.

Omaha Campus


  • Commencement for Omaha Programs

    Commencement exercises for engineering students in Omaha (studying at The Peter Kiewit Institute) will be hosted by the UNL College of Engineering. A list of ceremony times and an inclement weather schedule is posted on the UNO's Commencement Website.

  • E-Week -- Omaha

    On our Omaha Campus, E-Week is held in February to help celebrate National Engineers Week. Activities kick off with a Monday breakfast and follow with professional speakers, Senior High Discovery Day, Omaha eSAB- sponsored activities for current students, and industry activities.

  • Engineering Exploration Weeks (EEW)

    Sr. High EEW / Jr. High EEW

    EEW consists of one-week summer day camps held at The Peter Kiewit Institute (PKI) for students entering grades 8-9 and grades 10-12. Participating students explore engineering programs available at the college's Omaha Campus. The week is comprised of activities in Architectural, Civil, Construction, Computer and Electronics Engineering. The final day involves traveling to local engineering firms to tour their facilities, meet with current engineering professionals, and learn more about the field of engineering.

  • Explore Innovation

    The UNL College of Engineering and UNO College of Information Science & Technology programs offer the opportunity for prospective students and their families to see the state-of-the-art facilities, tour housing, and meet with faculty, staff and current students. The Fall event is scheduled at the end of October; the Spring event is held in April.

  • Engineering Math Prep Academy

    Our math academy is a one-week academic residential program designed to provide a head start for our incoming engineering and construction management students. It is aimed at enhancing the quality and quantity of students successfully completing their degree through the UNL College of Engineering (Omaha Campus).

  • Shadow Days

    Student Shadow Days at the College of Engineering provide an opportunity for high school students to shadow one of our current students (in your area of interest) for the day. This is a great way for you to experience what it's like being a student at Nebraska Engineering on our Lincoln or Omaha campuses.
