Lunch with an Engineer

Shiley has launched a new program for the 2018-19 academic year to offer students, especially freshman and sophomores, the opportunity to connect with working engineers in fields they are interested in pursuing careers. Each month, Shiley will host a “Lunch with an Engineer” event rotating among the 4 disciplines. Industry representatives will be invited to meet with students in small groups over lunch to talk about their career paths, interesting projects they work on, advice for getting started in engineering and more. While these lunches are not designed to be hiring opportunities, we hope they can help students clarify their career direction, get a sense of what types of positions are available and build relationships between our students, our alumni and our industry partners.
