Momentum Speaker Series

The Momentum Speaker Series is a TED-like, student-led speaker series designed to help Berkeley Engineering students gain momentum in their career searches and professional lives through advice from their peers. The goal of Momentum is to crowd source advice from peers who have succeeded and/or are experts in certain fields. Each event of the series will bring together six qualified speakers and focus on a common theme that will help the Berkeley Engineering community.

Check back in January for our Spring presentation.

The Momentum Speaker Series is a collaboration between two Berkeley Engineering students, Andrew Ansell and Mark Ansell, and Berkeley Engineering Student Services.
