This is an interactive session. Speakers will give a brief introduction, followed by an opportunity for attendees to ask questions and discuss topics of interest in a group setting. This session will be led by high-achieving students who will provide input on the following topics:

  • Recruiting and retaining engineering talent to build a strong employment pipeline

  • Development of an engineering co-op program

  • Best practices for structuring co-op rotations and improving the program and full-time conversion

  • Tips for instilling strongly aligned student and employer goals

  • Role of co-op experience in shaping your early career

Panel Members: Noe Villanueva, Jacob Colling, Jordan Vanderham, Jacob Stephens, Taylor Rieckhoff, Allison Rogutich, David Whitters, and Donald Lin
