What I enjoy about working for CU Boulder
I’ve had the opportunity to work on a lot of new initiatives related to alumni engagement and student professional development. We’ve made a lot of progress in the past few years and I’m excited to keep working on those programs!
I joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering in 2013 as an Academic Advisor and transitioned in 2018 to a new role as a Senior Professional Development Advisor. I completed a Doctorate in Education from the University of Colorado Denver in 2019 and currently serve as Program Co-Chair for Technical Sessions for the Cooperative and Experiential Education Division of the American Society for Engineering Education. My research focuses on students’ experiences navigating the internship search process and the integration of industry-based learning into the curriculum.
Contact Kat McConnell
Email is always the best way to reach me. My busiest (and favorite!) times of the year are when we have an event coming up. Summers and late during the fall or spring semester are a great time to talk with me about long term planning.
