Clay N. Hixson Student Success Center

Professional Development Series

In an effort to support the CORE VALUES of the College of Engineering, the Engineering Student Success Center created The Renaissance Engineer Professional Development Series. The Series consists of FREE 50-minute work ­shops that cover a variety of topics.

The Renaissance Engineer Professional Development Series was created in line with the mission of the university and college to improve undergraduates’ experiences and to produce well-rounded, profession-ready engineers, computer scientists and engineering technologists. The series consists of workshops, lectures and seminars conducted by pro­fessionals and covers topics to help students develop “soft skills.” Some of these topics include diverse career paths, leadership, finding mentors on the job, finding leadership opportunities on the job, interpersonal communication strategies, networking, interview strategies, working on a team, project management and working in a global context.
