Engineering Expo

We are excited to announce that our Fall 2021 Engineering Expo and Interview Day will be held in person on Tuesday, September 14, with the Interview Day to follow on September 15. The Expo and Interview Day will once again be held on the concourse level of Thompson-Boling Arena. We invite employers to register today via their employer ProConnect account and join us to recruit TCE engineering students for your 2022 positions. Students will need to ensure they have a student ProConnect account and we will provide registration instructions 5–10 business days prior to the Expo.

We will also be hosting the TCE Student Society Virtual Expo, a new virtual event via our ProConnect software system for additional fall semester student recruiting. While this event will be open to all engineering students, there will be a focus on connecting with key student chapters such as SWE, NSBE, SHIP, WIN, WISE, and Systers.
