The School of Engineering, its departments and organizations lead many events each year to benefit the students. The events run the gamut from strictly fun to more formal occasions.
A few of the regularly held events include:
Engineering Recognition Ceremony: At the end of the fall semester and the end of the spring semester, the school hosts a recognition ceremony and reception for new graduates. Information about the event and invitations are sent to graduating seniors and their parents or guardians. The spring ceremony takes place in Allen Fieldhouse and focuses guest seating on the south end of the facility.
Engineering Expo: Coordinated by Engineering Student Council and held at the end of Engineers Week, Expo lets students show off some of their amazing projects in a public setting. Expo usually attracts more than 1,000 visitors — primarily K-12 students, teachers and parents — to the KU campus and is a perfect opportunity to develop communication skills and share an enthusiasm for engineering and computer science. Learn more about Expo at the Engineering Student Council Web site.
Career Fairs: Engineering Career Center hosts two career fairs each year, one fall and one in early spring. The career fairs bring top employers to campus so students can learn more about job opportunities and make initial contacts with employers. Students at all academic levels are strongly encouraged to take part in these events. Business dress is strongly recommended. Learn more about the Engineering and Computer Science Career Fairs at http://www.engr.ku.edu/career_center/
SWE Evening with Industry: Students who want exclusive access to industry representatives will want a ticket to Evening with Industry. Held the night before the fall Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair, this banquet and presentation pairs students with prospective employers of mutual interest. Evening with Industry also provides an a social time for students to mingle and develop ties with employers. Learn more about Evening with Industry.
Information about additional School of Engineering events is included in the weekly School of Engineering News email sent to all students, faculty and staff.
The university also coordinates events and activities to benefit all students. Learn more about these events on the KU Events Calendar.
