It's hard to believe we are already midway through the semester! Be sure to join us at ME Alumni Connect Day next week on Friday, Nov. 8 where we will share about the launch of Student Experiential Education (SEE). SEE provides opportunities for mechanical engineering students to think and act like the professionals they want to become.
Thirty-two alumni and industry partners – seasoned and recently graduated – spoke on panels, presented about their careers and got to know students during the fourth annual Careers in ME Symposium. Over 250 second-year students attended.
There’s a new entry on the growing menu of tasty meat alternatives, brought to you by CU Boulder engineering alumni Tyler Huggins and Justin Whiteley. Emergy foods aims to launch this fast-growing, sustainable protein in Colorado restaurants.
