HAMMOND | To acquaint high school students with job and career opportunities in fields of engineering technology, Purdue University Calumet’s School of Technology is hosting a free summer workshop, Wednesday afternoons, June 12 through July 31.

Eight sessions are scheduled on campus from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The workshop is designed to enable participants to explore electrical, mechanical and mechatronics engineering technology disciplines and related baccalaureate degree study programs.
