7th Annual UC SEAoO Student Mentoring Night  (1.0 PDH)

An evening for Structural Engineers - Seasoned, Young and Prospective.  Hosted by our UC SEAoO student chapter.

This is a mixer event to acquaint young engineers with the trials and triumphs of our profession and will benefit both our experienced and future structural engineers. Students interested in the structural engineering profession should attend to gain insight on the road ahead.  To ensure a good career fit, students need to explore all of their options (work vs. grad school, new construction vs. renovations, bridges vs. buildings vs. construction vs. product sales vs. inspection vs. research, etc.). At this meeting, three recent graduates will be presenting their project and job experiences.  The goal of the night is to showcase various routes within structural engineering that students can pursue after graduation, and this year we will focus on various project types (industrial, entertainment, and parking garages/hospitals).  Seasoned engineers will also attend and facilitate dinner discussion and encourage our students.  Please dress in business attire.
