What is expected from the professionals who attend? Students have an assignment to ask questions about various professions and their chosen major. This is an opportunity for professionals to share their college experiences, career history and advice with future innovators.

What is the commitment? Come when you can. Leave when you must. One evening spent talking with students in a one-on-one or small group networking atmosphere.

What is the format? Professionals will be assigned to rooms based on your academic major or experience within each of the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering. Students and guests can move around the rooms and mingle. Based on majors, there will be round tables with chairs for students and professionals to gather and talk with each other. There will also be perimeter tables for displays.

YOU are the best interactive display.  If you’d like, bring small devices, prototypes, blueprints, products, or other visuals as conversation starters and to enhance students’ understanding of technology and career options. There are a limited number of display tables with power available, so reserve one early. Most professionals will be at large tables to just talk with students and answer their questions.

Will refreshments be available? Yes, there will be appetizers,  desserts and beverages in our VIP Lounge.

Cost? Free

Free Parking? YES
