This apartment crawl is hosted on the first weekend after school starts in September, and allows new engineering students to get to know each other and encourage them to apply to JC, all while having a super fun time!
  
This full day conference aims to promote the numerous opportunities available to engineers after graduating with their degree. The day consists of two speakers, departmental panels (electrical, computer and software, mechanical, chemical, civil (and architecture), mining and materials) and professional development workshops. This year, the departmental panels consisted of 3-5 industry professionals, professors and past interns who shared their story and answered any questions students had. The workshops this year were resume building, “Sell Yourself” (how to present yourself to a potential employer), networking, and leadership.
