 EDITOR'S ADVISORY: SRU, YSU to Sign Engineering Articulation Monday 

 

SPOTLIGHT

EDITOR’S ADVISORY                                    2/27/04

Officials from Youngstown State University, including President David C. Sweet, will visit Slippery Rock University Monday [March 1] to sign an education articulation agreement that will open opportunities to SRU students to study all phases of engineering at YSU.

The five-year agreement creates what is commonly called a “3+2 Program,” with students taking pre-requisite courses at SRU for their first three years, then transferring to YSU to complete their engineering studies. The program will be open to SRU students majoring in physics. Following successful completion of their first year at YSU, Slippery Rock University will award the student a bachelor of arts degree in physics and following completion of their second year of studies at YSU, Youngstown State University will award the student an engineering degree.

The formal signing ceremony, involving YSU President Sweet and SRU Interim President Robert Smith will afford interviews and an excellent photo opportunity at 1:15 p.m. Monday in the President’s Conference Room of Old Main on the SRU campus.

 (A tour of SRU’s Physical Therapy Building and a look at Slippery Rock’s downtown development project are slated to follow.)

Media planning to staff the signing are asked to call 724-738-2199.
