University of Utah SWE hosted its fifth annual Evening with Industry (EWI) on September 23rd. Thirteen companies attended the event, including: EMC, IM Flash, Autoliv, Psomas, Bard Access Systems, Questar, Chevron, Sandia Labs, Goldman Sachs, TD-Williamson, and Parsons-Brinkerhoff. Over 100 students attended the event and made valuable networking connections.
Planning took place over the entire summer and consisted of sending out invites to the companies, advertising to the student body, and planning logistics for the event. The evening was composed of two parts; students joined one company for dinner and another for dessert. The event ended with a mingling session where students could ask any additional questions to the company representatives.
Feedback from students has been very positive; the evening has even led to a few internships! This event would not have been possible without our corporate sponsors. Thank you for all you do to encourage women in engineering!
