MSU Virtual Engineering Exchange Session 5: Computer Science + Data Science Engineering @ HANDSHAKE VIRTUAL FAIR portal
Sep 17 @ 3:00 pm – 7:00 pm
MSU Virtual Engineering Exchange Session 5: Computer Science + Data Science Engineering @ HANDSHAKE VIRTUAL FAIR portal

The Engineering Exchange is an engagement fair that encourages networking between students, alumni, and recruiting professionals that will open the door to co-op, intern, and full-time opportunities. The benefit that a formalized engineering co-op or professional internship has on engineering undergraduate students is deep, as it provides exposure to real-world engineering industries, develops upon business communication and documentation skills, and creates an understanding and appreciating to engineering far beyond the textbook.

To effectively prepare for this event, connect with the virtual resources that The Center offers, schedule practice interviews through employers (Handshake) or Interview Stream, attend Employer Partner Sessions in August and September, participate in workshops, and, simply, partake in some quality networking events taking place digitally throughout the summer and fall terms!
