What is the Engineering & Tech Expo, and what students attend?

The Engineering & Tech Expo is an annual event attended by students in engineering and technology majors.  NDSU alumni are welcome to attend the Expo as well.  We also invite students from the Minnesota State University Moorhead Construction Management and Industrial Technology departments. The Expo is not open to the general public. 

The expo provides an excellent opportunity to connect with students to discuss or interview for current and/or future career-related employment and co-op/internship opportunities. Last year 175 employers and 1,549 students and alumni attended this event.

NOTE:  This event is only for bona fide employers of college interns and grads.  Anyone wanting to participate for the sole purpose of promoting anything except jobs may not attend.
