CSUN Offers Unique Learning Opportunity for Students Interested in Science and Engineering

California State University, Northridge is offering students at CSUN and neighboring colleges interested in careers in science and engineering an opportunity to network with industry professionals.

Oviatt LibraryThe event, sponsored by the Bonita J. Campbell Endowment for Women in Science and Engineering (WISE), will be held Tuesday, Oct. 9, in the Delmar T. Oviatt Library in the Jack and Florence Freman Presentation Room, located in the heart of the university’s campus at 18111 Nordhoff St. in Northridge.

Science and engineering representatives will be available to answer questions from 3 to 5 p.m. Students will be given a chance to participate in speed mentoring sessions with these professionals from 4 to 6 p.m.

“Many times students have questions about what it is really like to work in a particular industry,” said Joyclyn Dunham, project and program coordinator for Cal State Northridge’s library. “The WISE board thought it would be a great idea to allow students to ask those questions of working industry professionals in a relaxed setting here on campus.”
