AGES Panel and Networking Reception

Join AGES for a Panel and Networking Reception with industry partners and graduate engineering students. Hear from five employers across various industries as they share valuable insights on navigating the job search, transitioning to the industry, exploring career paths, and in-demand skills. After the panel discussion, mingle and network with panelists and other employers to discover an array of career opportunities. Ask questions about job roles, projects, challenges, and industry trends to gain a better understanding of your future in the engineering field. No need to bring a resume or CV. Don’t miss this opportunity to make meaningful connections and advance your career!
In addition, we will have a student photographer available to take headshots for engineering graduate students.
