Engineering and Tech Career Conference
At the beginning of each academic year the Career Center and Engineering Student Services holds the Engineering/Tech Career Conference which brings together students, employers and alumni, to learn, share strategies and connect all with a common goal: to make sure Berkeley Engineering students are prepared for the Fall Engineering/Tech recruiting season. We always have an exciting lineup of speakers, presentations and workshops planned to help you make the most out of your time at Cal, to ensure you are successful in recruiting now and in the future, and to prepare you for the professional world.
Registration opens August 1 through Handshake for new and continuing undergraduate engineering students.
