Cincinnati State helps high school students explore career paths

Cincinnati State will host a day-long program Friday, March 13 designed to help high school students 
answer the question so many are struggling to answer: “What type of career is best for me?”
From 9 a.m. – 1 p.m., Cincinnati State faculty and staff – assisted by students and business partners – 
will offer hands-on displays and interactive sessions to highlight the types of jobs that are in demand 

Representatives of Cincinnati State’s degree and certificate programs will hold breakout sessions in the 
college’s labs, classrooms and teaching kitchens. There students will have the opportunity to explore 
careers in such areas as arts & sciences, business, computers, culinary, engineering & manufacturing, 
environment, fitness, health, multimedia & design, public safety and transportation. 

More than 1,000 high school students and teachers are scheduled to attend the event, which is organized 
as “ENGAGE 2015 at Cincinnati State.” 

Event organizers say students will have the opportunity to do more than march from booth to booth. They 
will have the opportunity, for example, to try placing a lung cancer “patient” (Sim-Man, a mannequin 
outfitted with the latest in simulation technology) on a ventilator, or to conduct an electronic health record 
scavenger hunt.

Press coverage is welcome. For more information about Engage 2015 please visit .

programs in business technologies, health and public safety, engineering technologies, humanities and
