Technology and Innovation Lightning Talks

These short but impactful talks delivered by pioneers in the industry, focus on cutting edge technologies and innovations that affect the field of engineering. Find out how organizations are adapting to these emerging technologies and what they’ve learned to improve their businesses. You'll also have a chance to meet our speakers and get your burning questions answered at informal networking breaks.

“I really enjoyed the speakers. They inspired me to stick to my difficult courses and expand my vision for what I can do with engineering.”

“The industry connections were the best part [of E-Fest] for me.”

Career Advice + Mentoring

Practicing engineers in today’s workforce give you the low down on what it’s actually like working as an engineer post-grad. Hear their stories, ask questions and build your resume!

“I enjoyed the opportunity to connect with business leaders that could someday be the deciding factor between myself and a job.”

"The best part of E-Fest was learning from professionals in industry.”

“I really enjoyed the presenters at the first lunch meeting, they inspired to be more productive, and keep pushing in the direction I want.”

Interactive Workshops and Sessions

Build your resume and skill set by participating in collaborative workshops that include hands-on software demos and professional development sessions designed to help you navigate the early stages of your career and excel as a new engineer!

“I was exposed to three CAD software programs that I wasn't aware of before.”

“The keynote speakers and presentations that were given helped in my professional and technical development.”

“The software workshops were the most interactive and helpful.”

Entertainment and Fun

Celebrate engineering by mixing and mingling with your peers from near and far. 

“Meeting other competitors and engineering students was fantastic.  Being in the same room as so many creators helped inspire me to work harder and innovate more for next year.”

“I think the best thing about E-Fest is that it brought so many different schools together, and it provided the students with the opportunity to socialize with each other. It was cool to see how the curriculum is applied all across the nation.”

"The Social Events were great!”

“The best part of E-Fest was the exciting atmosphere and energetic attitudes from everyone involved.”
