Evening With Industry 2020
Each spring SWE sponsors its annual Evening with Industry (EWI), a career fair and formal dinner, that provides UW-Madison engineering students and company representatives the opportunity to network and discuss career opportunities. Evening with Industry 2020 was a huge success with 26 companies, 60 company representatives, and over 100 students in attendance! Of the students in attendance, over 50% were sophomores and the other 50% was split equally among the other years. There was a fairly even distribution of majors represented between Biomedical, Chemical, Computer, Industrial and Systems, and Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science. After attending EWI, 97% of students said that the event helped them improve their networking skills and comfort levels with career fairs.
This year, the event was held on February 4th at Union South in Madison, WI and included a career fair, formal dinner, and scholarship presentations from the UW-Madison SWE section and the Robyn Ryan Memorial fund. We finished the night off with a raffle drawing with donations provided by AE2S, Cargill, H.B. Fuller, Mass. Electric Construction Co, Oracle, TDS Telecommunications, and Twin Disc. Thank you to all the students and company representatives who attended, to all the SWE members for helping throughout the planning process, and to the College of Engineering and Computer Science Faculty for helping advertise the event. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the EWI contact list. Stay tuned for details on EWI 2021!
Thank you to the companies that donated to our raffle drawing!
