Students interview industry professionals at the 2012 Freshman Career Exploration Night.

Dear Colleagues:

We believe our students are engineers from day one. Their first year is a pivotal point in their engineering studies. We have implemented a number of initiatives aimed at engaging students early and helping them to get the most out of their Fulton Engineering experience.

The Freshman Engineering Career Exploration Night is an important part of our effort to bring new students into our engineering community from the start.

Started four years ago, Career Exploration Night breaks from the traditional career fair. We want our first-year students to be thinking ahead about career planning well before they are thinking about interviewing for internships or jobs.

At the event, students have the opportunity to meet with industry professionals in an informal setting to learn more about their chosen major, career paths and even challenges in the field.

Students will receive a workbook in ASU 101. The workbook is designed to prepare our students for the event. [Download the workbook.]

The professionals that attend are not necessarily recruiters. They are volunteers eager to share their engineering experience.

Each year more than 1,000 students and 200 professional engineers attend.

Please consider stopping by this year on September 10 between 4-8 p.m at the Memorial Union, second floor, to greet some students from your program as well as employers from your field. It is a unique opportunity for our students, and something that makes us stand out among engineering schools.

Jim Collofello
Associate Dean for Academic and Student Affairs
