CSE Winter Light Show 
Thursday, Dec. 9-Saturday, Dec. 11
Shows at 5:30, 6, and 6:30 p.m. each night
Civil Engineering Building Courtyard

The event is free and open to the public. No tickets are required.

The Premiere Party is Friday, Dec. 10, 5-6:30 p.m., in the Civil Engineering Courtyard. 

Join the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering (CSE) for three nights of dazzling light shows designed by science and engineering students. The high-tech light show features more than 250,000 LED lights set to music written and recorded by University of Minnesota students.

Now in its 10th year, the show has become a campus winter tradition. Lights will surround the semi-circular Civil Engineering Courtyard and will be synchronized to music for a 360-degree sensory outdoor experience. Features include a giant 22-foot lighted tree, two 8-foot 3D snowman signs, 8-foot lighted arches, a 5-foot-by-12-foot lighted pixelated changeable sign, a 6-foot circular light structure, 10 two-foot lighted snowflakes, and several lighted trees. The students estimate that the show includes more than five miles of lights and extension cords.

The entire show will last about 20 minutes.

The show is presented by the Tesla Works student group and supported by Banner Engineering, a Twin Cities-based manufacturer of industrial lighting and automation products. Additional funding is provided by the University of Minnesota College of Science and Engineering Student Services and the University of Minnesota Parent and Family Program.
