Meet the Engineers

Please be our guest at UST School of Engineering, Meet the Engineers event, where we turn the tables on the normal career fair.

Date/Time
Friday, October 3, 2014
2:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Friday, October 3rd, 2014 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Location

Woulfe Alumni Hall, 3rd floor of the Anderson Student Center on the Saint Paul, MN campus.

Join Us for a Different Kind of Career Fair… A reverse job fair where employers meet students.

Upper level engineering students will present themselves with a poster board and standby as prospective employers walk among and talk with students about their particular interests and talents. With no booths to prepare, we hope that you and your company will find the event a convenient way to meet some highly talented students.

It’s not your typical career fair, but then again the University of St Thomas is not where you will find your typical Engineer. We truly feel that we are doing something special here with the young exploring minds who attend St Thomas, and we invite you to come and see for yourself. We strongly believe that an Engineering education is about rolling up your sleeves on projects, getting your hands dirty and wrapping your mind around ideas which have the potential to change our world.

What You'll See: 

Meet the Engineers poster presentation

Last year, more than 90 promising Mechanical and Electrical Engineering students participated. Students interested in full-time employment and internships represent themselves with a small poster board. Each comes prepared for a hand shake and (hopefully) a compelling story to match your company’s needs. Students resumes are posted on-line in advance for your preview. Employers walk among the crowd visiting with students at their own pace.
