Engineering Alumni Panel Discussion and Networking Event

Each spring, the Engineering Alumni Mentoring and Networking Program sponsors a panel discussion in the Mildred & Ernest E. Mayo Concert Hall followed by a networking reception in the lobby. All engineering undergraduates and alumni, not just those participating in the program, are encouraged to attend this event.

We were thrilled to celebrate the 10th annual celebration of this event this academic year. The topic of the panel discussion was:

“Building Your Reputation in the Workplace”
