The University of Toledo Engineering Career Development Center will host its Fall 2013 Engineering Career Expo Wednesday, Sept. 25.
There are more than 100 companies registered to attend the event with additional companies expected to register. The expo will be an 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. “Some big name participants include Chrysler, Cooper Tire, DTE Energy, First Energy, General Mills, Honda of America, J.M. Smuckers, Johnson & Johnson, Kiewit, Marathon, NASA and Whirlpool.”
More than 600 engineering students have attended past career expos, according to Kuntz. She said she expects between 600 and 700 students and alumni to participate at this year’s fall event as well.
Only UT College of Engineering students, grads and alumni are eligible to attend.
“The expo is only open to University of Toledo students who are in the College of Engineering. However, UT engineering graduates who have been in the work force for a few years and are interested in exploring other positions are also welcome,” Kuntz said.
The UT Engineering Fall 2013 Career Expo will be held on the first floor of Nitschke Hall and North Engineering from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m.
Students do not need to register prior to the event; there will be a student check-in area starting at 12:15 p.m.
