The University of Toledo Engineering Career Development Center will host its Spring 2014 Engineering Career Expo Wednesday, Feb. 26.
More than 100 companies are registered to attend the spring expo, which will be a great opportunity for students to meet with employers for networking and future employment.
“Many companies from across the United States participate in this event,” said Dr. Vickie Kuntz, director of the Engineering Career Development Center. “A few of the nationally recognized companies scheduled to participate include Chrysler, Cooper Tire, CSX, DTE Energy, First Energy, General Electric, Honda of America, Johnson & Johnson, JP Morgan, Marathon and Whirlpool.”
Kuntz said in past career expos, more than 600 engineering students have attended the event. She expects between 600 and 700 students and alumni to participate at this spring expo.
Only UT College of Engineering students, grads and alumni are eligible to attend.
“The expo is open to University of Toledo students who are enrolled in the College of Engineering. In addition, UT engineering graduates who have been in the work force for a few years and are interested in exploring other positions also are welcome.”
The UT Engineering Spring 2014 Career Expo will be held from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. The event will begin in the North Engineering Building, continue through the first floor of Nitschke Hall, and conclude in the Engineering Connector Building.
Students do not need to register prior to the event; there will be a student check-in area starting at 12:15 p.m.
