and organizations about the wide range of career opportunities available for students with
Engineering and STEM degrees. Businesses already committed to participate include:
Northrop Grumman, Pankow Builders, Parsons, TetraTech, and the US Forest Service.
Career orientation events are extremely helpful to our EESA students in expanding their
horizons of professional opportunities and inspiring them in their pursuit of science and
engineering careers. But we need business partners to participate! Please see details below.
