At this year’s Engineering Week, the University of Central Florida’s College of Engineering and Computer Science (CECS) went all out. More than 20 organizations held college-wide engineering events, including Rube Goldberg competitions and multi-cultural formals. They played host to industry luminary Microsoft, which presented design and building competitions. In the coup de grâce, they attempted to break the world record for the longest high-five chain in conjunction with UCF CECS’ Limbitless Solutions team, which makes 3D printed prostheses for children. All of this was organized by the UCF ASEE Student Chapter.
In the early morning hours of Friday, March 13, the students of Rose-Hulman woke up to a chalk parade of numbers winding through campus. It was the late-night work of Amanda Carlin and the Tau Beta Pi engineering honor society in preparation for Pi Day.
We are reviving our Accelerator Facebook page! ASEE is dedicated to bringing you the most up-to-date information in engineering education student news and entertainment. We can’t do that simply by emailing you once per month, however. We often get late-breaking news on scholarships, grants, and contests that have deadlines before we can post about them—but we want you to know about them when we find out! To avoid overloading your inbox with multiple emails every month, we are bringing our Facebook page back. Click here to like us and share with your friends. When you do, you will get extra updates on engineering education news, grants, and the occasional entertaining video. Like us today!
The job market is notoriously shaky right now. Searching for jobs on top of all of the priorities that you have is a mentally and physically difficult, not to mention time-consuming, process. Many students are applying across the board—to academe and industry—and hoping that something good sticks. If you are one of them, you could likely use some guidance on how to juggle it all.
