MECH Virtual First-Year Networking Event – Feb 17, 2022

Join Mechanical Engineering online for our First-Year Networking Event!

Are you a first-year Engineering student interested in learning about Mechanical Engineering? Join us for a special online networking event where you’ll get to meet our students, alumni, and faculty members!

Join us for this unique online networking event where small groups of students will be matched with one current student, one alum and one professor so that everyone gets a chance to talk directly to the people who know the program the best. If you are considering applying for Mechanical Engineering, now is your chance to have all your questions answered from the perspectives of someone who’s in the program, someone from industry who’s been through the program and is now in the working world, and one of your future professors.

Whether you’re not sure of your program choice, or on the fence between Mechanical Engineering and another program, don’t miss this excellent opportunity to get the facts and make some great contacts!

When: Thursday, February 17th, 2022  |  5:30-7:30 pm
