Engineering holding ‘Instant Decision Day’ on June 2

Western Carolina University has engineered the higher education equivalent of an express lane in the admissions process for prospective students interested in enrolling in a new bachelor’s degree program in engineering that began offering classes at Biltmore Park last fall.

WCU will host “Instant Decision Day” from 3:30 until 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 2, at its instructional site at Biltmore Park Town Square.

Representatives of the university’s Department of Engineering and Technology will be on hand to answer questions about the program, and admissions counselors will be available to offer same-day decisions to students who apply that day.

The new program, an extension of WCU’s Cullowhee-based undergraduate engineering program housed in the Kimmel School of Construction Management and Technology, offers evening courses designed for students who are currently working or who are enrolled in community college classes.

Expansion of WCU’s engineering education program to the fast-growing corridor between Asheville and Hendersonville is designed to help meet increasing industry and business demand for a highly qualified workforce.
