We hosted our annual networking night on Thursday, November 9. We are so thrilled to have had so many student attendees, more than last year! We were joined by representatives from Rockwell Automation, GE, Boston Scientific, Google, and Accenture and more!
Like in past years we did a "speed networking" style, where students moved from table to table and talk with our professional representatives. Our first networking night was in 2001 and we are looking forward to continuing this tradition for many more years!
