USD Engineers Roll Out Red Carpet for Veterans

It won’t rival a glamorous Hollywood premiere. But it does have a dramatic message: that engineering can be a great career for veterans.

Thousands of veterans in California now have the opportunity to further their education through the Post 9/11 GI Bill. Today, the University of San Diego’s Engineering Programs will officially premiere a new video inviting them to consider engineering.

The 10-minute-video features USD engineering students and alumni in class and on the job at places like Qualcomm Inc., L-3 Communications, SPAWAR Systems Center Pacific and Scripps Health Care. USD President Mary E. Lyons also makes an appearance. The campus and public is invited to the premiere at 3 p.m. in USD’s Joan B. Kroc Institute for  Peace & Justice Theatre.
