Goodyear anticipates welcoming over 3,000 students, parents and teachers to The University of Akron campus for its day-long Engineering Career Day event.  In addition to exposure to UA's new landscape for learning, students will interact with representatives from over 50 local organizations, who will be hosting hands-on engineering activities throughout the day.

The free event will also be a conduit of giving for Goodyear, which will give away over $40,000 in scholarships and grant awards to participants. 

"At Goodyear, our most valuable asset is the talent and skill sets of our people. Engineering Career Day showcases our dedication to fostering future engineers at a young age. Investing early is key to attracting and retaining young innovators.

"We are pleased to welcome the participants of Goodyear's Engineering Career Day to the University of Akron campus," says George K. Haritos, dean of the College of Engineering.
