The Washington State MESA Community College Program will be holding a MESA Engineering & Computer Science Day on Saturday, April 27, 2013 at Highline Community College. Our goal is to provide 60 community college students majoring in pre-engineering and pre-computer science the opportunity to learn more about specific disciplines in engineering and computer science, career opportunities, engage in networking, and expose students to industry professionals who can inform, motivate, and connect with our students.
Our students are underrepresented in STEM fields and often the first in their family to attend college. The opportunity to meet and learn from industry professionals like you is an extremely valuable experience for our students. This day-long conference is open to MESA students at four community college campus including: Edmonds, Highline, Olympic, and Seattle Central Community Colleges.
We are seeking industry and academic professionals with engineering and computer science backgrounds to participate this day. There is a wide range of opportunities to participate including: 1) facilitate small group discussion about your engineering or computer science discipline (workshop), 2) engage with students during a networking lunch, and/or sit on a career panel. Feel free to extend the invitation to others in your circle.
We know your time is valuable and you are exceedingly busy, but we also know that as a MESA staff member and computer scientist, your commitment to URM students in computer science and computer engineering undeniable. We hope you will consider spending a few hours with these students who will forever remember this event and your participation in it.
