EXPERIENCE VAUGHN’S INTERACTIVE OPEN HOUSE
At Vaughn College you’ll get a Next Generation Education. Do you want to fly planes, build advanced robotics, or learn how to lead? At our Open House, you can find out what it's like when you climb in the cockpit, build in the mechatronics lab, and get a real hands-on experience. Sign up soon. Space is limited and there's never been an event like this one.
Expand the "Scope" of Your Mind
Go behind the instrument panel of aviation’s sophisticated electronics, also known as avionics. Get your hands on the latest in-flight control systems including aircraft navigation systems, radio communications, radar and automatic flight control.
Engineer Your Part
Log on to a computer workstation running CATIA version V, the gold standard of design software, and create a basic component for an engineering system that could end up in the next space shuttle, weather satellite or super-engine. Limited to 10 students.
Step onto the Flight Deck
Put your hands on the controls of a jet aircraft. You can take the pilot's seat in one of our brand-new Redbird or FRASCA flight simulators to practice takeoffs, landings and other flight maneuvers. Limited to 15 students.
Tower Traffic ON THE AIR
Hear actual radio traffic explained by an air traffic controller as you watch aircraft land from our three-story observation tower, just across the street from LaGuardia Airport. Check out the Manhattan skyline, too! Limited to 20 students.
Fire up the Jets
Experience the sophistication of modern jet and reciprocating computer-controlled fuel systems that power today's commercial aircraft. You'll be blown away when you get to control two of Vaughn's state-of-the-art jet fuel injection systems.
On the Line
Design, program and run a flexible assembly line. Start with the mechatronics system lab's 3D simulation software, manipulating sensors, subsystems and logic controllers to configure the robotics next door. When you're done, run the line and see your designs come to life.
Come experience the 3D computer graphics and visual effects used in blockbusters. Practice with our green screen and see how Photoshop, After Effects and 3D Max create effects in popular video games and movies.
Run Your Business
Using CAPSIM business simulation, learn about the marketing, production, research and finance operations in a competitive commercial environment.
