The University of Toledo Engineering Career Development Center will host its Fall 2014 Engineering Career Expo Wednesday, Sept. 24.
More than 140 companies — a record number — are registered to attend the fall expo.
“Many companies from across the United States participate in this event,”
Dr. Vickie Kuntz, director of the Engineering Career Development Center, said. “A few of the nationally recognized companies scheduled to participate include Dana Holding, Cooper Tire, CSX, First Energy, General Electric, General Mills, Honda, Johnson & Johnson/Depuy, JP Morgan, Kiewit Corp., Marathon, Owens Corning, Owens-Illinois and Whirlpool.”
More than 600 engineering students have attended past career expos, according to Kuntz, and she expects between 600 and 700 students and alumni to participate in this event.
She added the expo will be a great opportunity for students to meet with employers for networking and future employment.
“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 Fall 2014 Career Expo will be held in Nitschke Hall from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Students do not need to register prior to the event; there will be a student check-in area opening at 12:15 p.m. the day of the expo.
