Engineering Day

Science, technology, engineering and math careers are in high demand. We are committed to helping local students turn their interest in STEM classes into future careers. To help them explore the vast array of possibilities, we invite high school juniors and seniors to Engineering Day.


Students spend the day learning about a variety of engineering disciplines and other related professions, participating in hands-on workshops, touring local engineering sites, and networking at a mini-job fair staffed by local firms and colleges. 

The event usually takes place the third week in February, during National Engineers Week. For exact dates and schedule, contact Portland District at 503-808-4510 or
