About this event
IEEE NSS 2015
>> What is the Networking SuperSession?
The Networking Super Session (NSS), organised by the University of Alberta IEEE Student Branch, is a student-industry mixer designed to foster closer ties between students and local and regional industry. This is done through a relaxed, Friday-afternoon atmosphere and by maintaining a low ratio of students-to-industry reps so that all student participants get a chance to meet industry representatives. We invite companies to send engineering professionals from all engineering disciplines.
We anticipate 50+ industry reps and 150+ student participants. NSS 2015 will be held on Friday, November 27th, starting at 4:00 PM in the Engineering Teaching and Learning Complex (ETLC) Solarium on the University of Alberta main campus. We hope to see you there!
>> What are the benefits of industry participation?
Gain exposure to undergraduate and graduate students in the areas of electrical and computer engineering and related disciplines.
Promote your company’s presence and activities to future engineers.
>> How does my company participate?
Basic participation is free for companies.
Please send up to two practicing engineers to represent your company.
Please consider sponsorship and the benefits it brings.
