Herff College of Engineering Career Fair

09-23-2016 @ 12:15pm,

Engineering is having a Fall Career Fair Wednesday, September 28, from 8:30 am – 11:30 am for internships, co-ops and full-time employment opportunities.

We are asking all students to Pre-register for the Career Fair so we can provide printed name tags with your major when you sign in for the Career Fair. To register click here.

Career Fair Tips

  • Make sure you research the companies attending. Researching will help you form your strategy, demonstrate preparedness and ensure you make a positive first impression.
  • Form your strategy based on those companies you really want to see.
  • Recruiters are impressed with students who demonstrate familiarity with their organization, ask intelligent questions and explore fit.
  • Have a well-written and concise resume.
  • Professional dress attire highly recommended – Remember to look polished!
  • Communication is important – introduce yourself and have a firm handshake and maintain eye contact.
  • Prepare questions to ask the recruiters. Asking good questions shows genuine interest.
  • Do not monopolize a company’s time.
  • Ask for business cards to follow-up with a thank-you note via email to the recruiters you talked with.
  • Practice your Elevator Speech – a short pitch that highlights your strengths and what distinguishes you from others.

Helpful Video Tutorials for Electronics Students

Peer Tutoring

08-26-2016 @ 8:15pm,

Once again Herff College is offering peer tutoring for our undergraduate students.

Attached is the Fall Tutoring schedule for you (click button below). We have a couple of new things this year.

1) Every student will need to swipe their university ID for check-in and check-out at tutoring. Tutoring is still FREE, but this will allow us to see how many students are using the free tutoring and make sure we are providing the best service possible.

2) Tutoring now has a new home. ALL tutoring will take place in ET236. This means the tutors won't be kicked out of the room due to scheduling conflicts. Also, this room is open for anyone to use through out the day for students to study in groups, use computers, and printing.


Arduino Mini Course

08-25-2016 @ 4:00pm,

Todd Canaday will be offering a mini course on the Arduino microcontroller. The course is a non-credit, FREE class that is tentatively set to run Thursday at 9PM from Sep 8 to Oct 27. Click on the button below for more info.

I will offer extra credit for those students who fully participate in this mini-course who are in TECH 3232 and 3821.

Watch this entry for info on how to sign up when it becomes available.

Senior Project Equipment

09-10-2008 @ 5:15pm,

Do you know what you want to do for senior projects but don't have the equipment or money to buy it? I have acquired many items over the years that can be used for EETH and CETH senior projects (see link below).

I also have a number of computers that can be used by students for senior projects in ET227a for your use in case you need software not installed on the image in the computer labs, or you need Linux or another OS.
