Start your power play

University regional conferences offer opportunities to begin your rise up

Students can jump-start their careers with IIE’s 2015 university regional conferences.

In addition to various competitions that allow the winners to present at the IIE Annual Conference and Expo 2015 in Nashville, Tenn., attendees can network with and listen to speakers from industries, take plant tours to learn about processes and potential employers, and start forming their own professional networks with other up-and-coming students.
