Engineering Career Fest

Engineering Career Fest is a low-pressure networking event where students can learn more about different types of engineering through interactive, hands-on, ‘WOW!’ displays. Employers are invited to campus to share the cool things they make, do, or innovate.

This is a casual event, and no resumes are exchanged, simply network and learn!

Fest was a great way to talk to employers in a low-stress environment! I was able to learn more about what computer engineers do at their company and made some awesome connections!
