Thursday Night Social Reception Activity


The Thursday night reception will take place inside the newly remodeled University Club. Join us for light finger food and refreshments while you network with your fellow conference attendees.

The University of Pittsburgh is in the middle of a major building transformation. Starting at 5:00 pm and going into the reception we will offer individual tours of the new facility including our new state of the art computer assisted teaching classrooms.


  1. Tour our technology classrooms
  2. Tour the RFID Technology lab
  3. Tour the Nano Research lab
  4. Tour the Student Organization space and the Formula Race Car lab
  5. Tour the new research labs on the second floor, show the Lab Space and the Collaborative nature of modern engineering curricula

The reception is designed to allow attendees to meet fellow faculty and have the time to network and discuss engineering education topics in an open forum. The evening will have designed activities to encourage people to meet, lean about each other and explore related Engineering Education Topics. Come prepared to share ideas and make new friends.

After the reception you can enjoy time out with friends at one of the many fine restaurants within walking distance of the university. Use this map for a list of local restaurants, or just go explore on your own.
