Engineering Open House – 2011 “Defining the Future”
Engineering Open House (EOH) is an annual event organized entirely by engineering students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. In 2011, it was held on Friday, March 11 and on Saturday, March 12. The special guest this year was Jeff Lieberman, roboticist, physicist, musician, photographer, and host of the Discovery Channels’ Time Warp. EOH draws estimated crowds of 20,000 people including, students, teachers, parents and families, from all over Illinois (and beyond). RailTEC participates each year by working with major railroads who set up various exhibits and displays of railroad technology.
