2017 New Website

We introduce to you a new website!  Please take a look at it and let us know what you think of it.


We thought we would keep both this site and unoef.org synchronized, but we decided to focus solely on the new site instead.  Please go there from now on.

Thanks a ton for your support!

2017 Welcome

This year's UNO Engineering Forum will be partnering with SSCET, the Southeast Symposium on Contemporary Engineering Topics, for a joint event on Friday, September 15, 2017. Like last year, we will have a discussion panel and interdisciplinary presentations in the morning, followed by a luncheon speaker, and eight rooms of parallel tracks in the afternoon. Details are secret right now, but we'll reveal them as we get closer to the Forum.

Thanks for supporting us! We had a great Forum last year and intend to have an even greater one this year.

2016 Venue: University Center!

The 2016 UNO Engineering Forum will be hosted on the second floor of the University Center (UC). Just off Elysian Fields Ave, the UC provides a number of large, open spaces that lends itself to events and serves as a natural gathering spot.

Prior to 2016, the Engineering Forum was hosted at the Center for Energy Resources Management (CERM). This year, the Forum has moved just few hundred meters southwest to the University of New Orleans' campus.

Parking will be provided in the lot adjacent to the UC at the corner of Elysian Fields Ave and Alumni Dr. The Forum itself will be held on the second floor of the UC.

Role of Engineers in the Future of America: Engineering Education and Leadership

In the morning of Friday, September 16, the Engineering Forum will host a two-hour panel discussing the role of engineers in the future of America. Five panelists, representing industry, academia, and government, will get together to share their views and to answer questions from the panel moderator, each other, and the audience.

If there are issues you would like discussed in the panel, please email us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. !

Here are the biographies of the panel's moderator and the five panelists.


2016 Beginnings

Mark your calendars.  The 2016 Engineering Forum will be on September 16, 2016.  Keep taking a peek at the Sessions page to see the tracks as they get updated for this year. 

While you're waiting, check out the schedules from the last two years by going to m.uno-ef.org.

This will be the first year that the UNO Engineering Forum will be separate from SSCET.  As such, we have a new logo!
