The College of Southern Maryland (CSM) is hosting an informational session Sept. 13 for prospective students who are considering a four-year degree in electrical or mechanical engineering.

The Pre-Engineering Program is part of CSM’s Southern Maryland Engineering Partnership (SMD-E) with the Naval Air Warfare Center (NAWC-AD) and the University of Maryland at College Park. The program will be led by Dr. David Barrett, who will explain how students can complete a four-year engineering degree in Southern Maryland by completing their first two years of college at CSM and then transferring to the University of Maryland A. James Clark School of Engineering located at the Southern Maryland Higher Education Center to complete their final two years of studies.

The Pre-Engineering Program Informational Session will be streamed live starting at 1:30 p.m. at the CSM La Plata Campus, BI Building 009, located at 8730 Mitchell Road; the CSM Leonardtown Campus, Room A208, located at 22950 Hollywood Road; and the CSM Prince Frederick Campus, PFA 108, located at 115 J.W.
