Engineers and Geoscientists BC is hosting a virtual TRU student and industry night. This fun and casual evening provides a great opportunity for industry professionals to share their knowledge, career anecdotes, and advice with TRU engineering students. It's also a great opportunity to socialize and network virtually with fellow colleagues.

Instructions for Networking

Networking will be facilitated through the zoom breakout feature. Please ensure that you have updated to the latest version (5.3.0 or later) of Zoom in order to actively participate in the breakout rooms.

Students have the chance to meet with industry participants in a variety of specialties and ask them questions about work and lifestyle choices, to gain a deeper understanding of what opportunities are available and to cover the topics important to them. The event is organized similar to a “speed-networking” event, where students rotate from room to room in a virtual setting.

Full instructions will be given to industry and students along with the webinar login a few days prior to the event.
