The IEEE New Hampshire Young Professionals (YP) and Women in Engineering (WIE) hosted a special event aimed at introducing students to professional life and educating them regarding their potential careers.
Students and professionals gathered in the new Innovations and Design Education Building (IDE) School of Engineering Technology and Aeronautics (SETA) building on the SNHU campus. Meeting opened with presentations by Barbara Bancroft and Soon Wan. Barbara introduced IEEE in general and Soon spoke about opportunities for students. Afterwards students and young professionals formed small groups for discussion. Young professionals shared their experiences on how to get a job and what to expect in the industry. Students asked a lot of great questions. We could have talked much longer, but our special tour guide arrived for a tour of the new building. In January of 2020 SNHU opened a new state of the art Engineering Building. IDE is designed to promote learning, group work and collaboration. It has many interesting features such as makers lab, drone arena and Conceive Design Implement Operate (CDIO) project spaces. Meeting ended with a raffle. Many items were raffled such as SNHU cups, IEEE and SNHU t-shirts and terabyte thumb drives. Everybody had fun and students learned a lot about their prospective careers. Many thanks to the young professionals who attended the meeting and shared their experience.
