SE Solutions Assists AISC at the 2018 Steel Conference Students Connecting with Industry Sessions (SCIS)
SE Solutions was excited to assist AISC organize the Student Event (SCIS) at the Steel Conference for the 8th year in a row. (see www.aisc.org/scis for further details) This year’s conference was in Baltimore, Maryland and 200 students attended the event. SCIS aims to give students the opportunity to hear career insights from distinguished design professionals, connect and interact with leading industry experts, and mingle with other like-minded students.
This year’s event included presentations by Jim Malley from Degenkolb Engineers and Kim Olson from FORSE Consulting. Jim and Kim were able to provide insight to new engineers on the best strategies to be successful in their new careers, how to learn quickly on-the-job, and different aspects of the business side of structural engineering.
In the afternoon, students were able to attend “Direct Connect” which allows students to interact with industry experts from design and construction companies in a relaxed setting, while making personal contacts within major firms throughout North America. This networking event was a great opportunity to meet with up to 50 firms, all under one roof, and gain further advice and strategies from other successful structural engineers. If your company would be interested in participating in Direct Connect in the future, please e-mail Brian Quinn at Brian.Quinn@FindYourEngineer.com. (There is no cost for companies to participate) Next year’s conference will be in St. Louis.
