Each December and June, students from our online Computer Science program gather in the Portland, OR metro area with members of industry for a one-day Student Seminar and Career Showcase. Students in this program have already completed a bachelor's degree and are working on a second bachelor's in Computer Science. As part of the event, attendees go through mock interviews and network with industry guests. For more information or to register for our next event, contact Tina.Batten@oregonstate.edu.
Looking for a different way to engage with students? Software Hackathons are a great way to connect on a more personal level with students who are working on a project. Hardware Hackathons target students from all engineering majors, arts, music, and textiles. Both aim at creating something new in a relatively short amount of time. Industry sponsors have the opportunity to mentor young engineers, judge projects, while building brand visibility on campus. Sponsorship levels vary. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
Industry needs fresh perspectives and ideas to keep inventing the future. Where better to find these fresh ideas than by tapping into students’ creativite minds? Student interns are hired in small teams to work on a specific project with a client. These students leverage their own excitement, faculty mentoring, and industry guidance to create things that have never been seen before. Suggested donations vary depending on project. Contact Don Heer (Donald.Heer2@oregonstate.edu) for more information.
