ATTEND A VIRTUAL CAREER FAIR
ENGINEERING EXPO ALL MONTH!
We are hosting multiple industry focused Expos during February to celebration National Engineers Week! The purpose of these events is to provide a venue for students to explore paths where their major may lead them and start exploratory discussions about internship, co-op, and full-time opportunities! That said, we strongly encourage you to offer at least 1 group session so that students still have the opportunity to network and learn about the organizations. The is especially important for fist and second year students.
