High school students or recent graduates who are interested in pursuing a career in information technology, computer science and engineering are invited to attend the Information Night At Edison Community College on Thursday, Feb. 16. 

Students, graduates and parents who attend will have the opportunity to meet with Edison faculty and admissions members, tour labs and speak with some of the area’s industry partners. 

“Some of our local industry partners will be available to talk to students and their parents about opportunities available in our area,” said Patti Ross, Dean of Information Technology and Engineering. “These industries often hire our student interns as part of their associate’s degree programs.” 

In addition to meeting with industry partners, attendees will have the chance to learn about Edison’s 2+2 agreements with some of the region’s top four-year universities such as the University of Dayton, Miami University and the University of Cincinnati. 

“University partners will be on hand to talk to students about our 2+2 agreements that provide students a clear pathway from their associate’s degree at Edison to attainment of their 4-year degree in IT, computer science or engineering,” said Ross “For many families, this is a very cost effective option because students are able to earn their first two years at Edison at a much lower tuition rate and then transfer directly into the four-year program at the school of their choice.” 

The information session will begin at 6:30 p.m. and end at 8 p.m. in the Emerson Center of the Piqua Campus. Students and parents who are interested are welcome to contact Kristi Wildermuth at 937-778-7865 or for more information. 

In addition to the evening’s featured events, there will be a drawing for a $200 Visa debit card that will be awarded at the end of the session.
