Engineering Career Forum

The twelfth annual Engineering Career Form will be held in January 2017. Registration for this event will open in Fall 2016. The agenda for the 2016 event is below for your review.

As with the previous forums, this activity is an ideal way for alumni and employers to meet students and provide important career information and professional advice. Participants will have a light dinner with student leaders and faculty from the College of Engineering and Computer Science, serve on a panel discussion, and informally network with students during the reception.
