The Fall 2017 Engineering Expo was a tremendous success, setting new records for attendance by both visiting companies and students. The Office of Engineering Professional Practice hosted the expo on Thursday, Sept 21, in Thompson-Boling Arena. The event offers a day for companies to connect with engineering students for their cooperative education (co-op) and internship education programs.
Ninety companies attended, the largest amount in the Professional Practice program’s 91-year history — up from the 80 that attended in the fall of 2016. The increased number of participating companies helped draw in a record number of 846 engineering students, also, up from last year’s 731.
