Poly Introduces NYC High School Students to Engineering Careers



Under the banner of Project RAISE, an NSF GK12 program, 120 high school students from four NYC high schools gathered at Polytechnic University to learn about career options in civil and mechanical engineering. Poly professors and graduate students provided the training, together with Poly alumni Kenneth Jack and Franck Rougier, who are both practicing engineers. Students visited four laboratories and met with Poly students who are assigned to local high schools as RAISE Fellows. Leading this project are Poly Professors Vikram Kapila, Magued Iskander and Noel Kriftcher.
