Dean's Update:

  • Career Panel: So You Want to be an Engineer

    Students who are pursuing majors in the College of Engineering are invited to attend this career panel event. Professional engineers who majored in engineering and are USF Honors College alumni, will be answering your questions about the profession.  Come ready to ask your career questions and network with local engineers who were once in your seat!

    This event is on Thurs., September 18 at 6:00 pm in JPH 1317. Please RSVP!  (This is also a FreshPeople5 event so it's also a great opportunity for first-year students currently taking EGN 3000, Foundations of Engineering.)
