IEEE-HKN Pathways to Industry

IEEE-HKN Pathways to Industry
 August 14, 2018

The videos in this HKN Workshop Series are made possible through support from IEEE-USA and ECEDHA, the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department Heads Association.

The transition from grad school to industry isn’t discussed as often as academic careers, despite happening in larger numbers than those who stay in academia. We invite graduate students to join us for a session of our pilot HKN Pathways Program, where we will focus on this transition. In partnership with ECEDHA, we are bringing together students and professionals to discuss personal career paths, share hard-earned insights, and offer practical advice for young professionals.
