Speaking or presenting in the classroom

It’s not a guarantee faculty will allow companies or representatives of companies to use class time, which is limited to begin with, but it never hurts to ask. If you would like to contact a member of the faculty to allow for an industry presentation, it can be arranged. However, a more effective method of scheduling a classroom visit is to bring in an engineering project or problem you face at your company related to a class topic.

Scheduling résumé reviews and mock interviews on campus

Engineering Career Services offers a variety of pop-up programming, including Walk-In Resume Review Days, to support the success of engineering and construction students. Ideally these are scheduled prior to the spring and fall career fairs but it’s important to have industry input on putting together a résumé and preparing for a job interview.

Engaging with campus events

Companies can engage with College of Engineering students during the academic year in a variety of ways, too. The schedule below provides a sampling of unique events throughout the year where industry can assist in engineering programming and engage with students across all majors and disciplines: Contact: Jen Skidmore Contact: Phil Carter Contact (Scott Campus): Robia Qasimyar Contact (City Campus): Bonnie Martin

E-Week a.k.a. Engineer’s Week

(February)

Coordinated by the College of Engineering’s two student advisory boards with help from industry sponsors. Varying sponsorship levels allow for different levels of engagement. Some industries have coordinated presentations on campus with sponsorship, others have sponsored events (i.e., bridge-building competitions), supported a food event like The Pancake Man, and attended an industry mixer.

The Complete Engineer Conference

(March) The premier leadership development conference for engineering undergraduates at Nebraska. There are sponsorship opportunities to gain exclusive networking with students and raise brand awareness. Additionally, there are workshop opportunities to write up proposals for hands-on skill-building activities, and if selected, present a breakout session to up to 35 students. Workshops are not tied to sponsorship or any other monetary contribution.

Senior Design Showcase

(April) This event offers industry attendees an opportunity to browse the new and innovative projects from graduating engineering students; vote on the “People’s Choice Award” for favorite project; and tour Memorial Stadium and the Nebraska Athletic Performance Lab. It also gives attendees an opportunity to talk with students about their academic year-long project and network with College of Engineering faculty also in attendance. Contact: Phil Carter
