When is a Career Fair not a Career Fair? When it's an Expo! The Engineering Expo is meant to be an interactive, information sharing event. A chance for our students to gain knowledge of companies, interact with alumni, network with professional engineers, and get the "insider" information lacking in the regular career fair model.

Many companies are looking for a variety of majors that can be found in Lyman Briggs, including biology, chemistry and computer science. Johnson and Johnson and TechSmith are examples of outstanding companies that only hire the best of the best. Don't be afraid because it says "ENGINEERING", you can still go, network, and land a summer internship!!!
