Each year the College of Science & Engineering at the University of Minnesota celebrates “the science and engineering student experience.” This is the event’s centennial with the theme “100 Years of Celebrating Science and Engineering.” There are a variety of events and activities planned for CSE Week 2014 (April 21-27). The Minnesota Alpha Chapter of Tau Beta Pi will host a CSE Trivia Night on Wednesday, April 23, as part of the CSE Week schedule. The family-style trivia competition is for all engineering students and student groups are encouraged to bring a team to compete and enjoy the free food!
