Michigan State University's College of Engineering is hosting an Engineering Career Expo during National Engineers Week (E-week) to provide a venue for students to explore a variety of options within the manufacturing and technology sectors while offering employers an opportunity to review talent and offer advice. The event will commence at 10:00 am on Thursday, Feb. 20th with set-up and lunch for employers (at one of our Dining Halls). The Expo begins at 12:00 pm and concludes at 3:30 pm.
The goal of the Expo is to provide students an opportunity to interact with professionals/alumni in various fields and industries. This is an invaluable chance for students to hear about career preparation, success factors, and suggested coursework from professionals and alumni in industry, as well as possible co-op/internship/full-time positions (and how to apply).
Each organization will be given a six-foot table located strategically in the hallways of the Engineering College. Students will able to circulate and seek advice on their career aspirations. We are hoping that you (or technical representative and/or engineering alumni) can attend. Total cost for a table at the event is $400.
New this year….Interviewing space is available on Friday, February 21st.
An “Evening with Industry Banquet” , sponsored by the Women in Engineering Program, Diversity Programs Office and the Student Engineering Council will be held the night before, Wed, Feb. 19th at 6:00 pm at the Huntington Club (located within Spartan Stadium). Two tickets to the banquet are included in your Expo registration package. Student Awards and/or table sponsorships are available as part of your registration process.
For more information and to register for the event, go to the registration website at: https://msu-csm.symplicity.com/events/Expo13 or contact us directly.
The Engineering Expo at Michigan State is meant to be an interactive, information sharing expo. A chance for our students to gain knowledge of companies, interact with alumni, network with professional engineers, and get the "insider" information lacking in the regular career fair model.
The Engineering Expo at Michigan State is designed to act as a:
(1) Information source for our students (especially freshman and sophomores). Our students are encouraged to interact and ask you the questions they typically wouldn't in standard career fairs. We want this to be an open exchange of information between student and professional. There will also will seminars throughout the week to provide information to students on a number of topics.
(2) Networking Opportunity between students and professionals. Our students need your insight on the profession of Engineering. Many haven't had the experience of meeting with, talking with, and sharing ideas with degreed engineers. They need your advice on many issues, including but not limited to co-ops, interns, and careers in Engineering (i.e. Which discipline and/or industry?) They want to meet with you to "pick your brain"and possibly set-up a mentoring situation.
(3) A Career Connection source.......yes, the Expo also serves a "laid-back" Career Fair. For those employers wishing to connect with Spartan Engineers "in-training", the Expo serves as a source for discussion, connection, and interview of potential candidates.
