Evening With Industry

Tuesday, September 19th, 2017, 6 p.m.

Evening With Industry is an annual dinner held the night before the fall Engineering and Computing Career Fair. It is a great networking opportunity for students and employers to visit prior to the career fair.


Engineering and computing students get an exclusive opportunity to interact with prospective employers. Pre-registration and payment must be made in advance. The cost is $15 for all engineering students. 

The evening includes time to mingle and a formal dinner. Event organizers do their best to connect students with employers representing the student's career interests with preference given by level and registration date. In addition, all employers who take part in the event will receive a flash drive with resumes of all students in attendance. In order to have a resume on this flash drive it must be submitted by 5 p.m., September 13, 2017.

All School of Engineering students at all academic levels are strongly encouraged to attend this exclusive event. Seating is limited. Dress is business attire.

Student registration and a list of companies attending will be available in August. Please email janellewhisler@ku.edu if you have questions.


This event is a wonderful opportunity for employers to let potential candidates know what makes their organization stand out. The event helps companies build real connections with KU students. The relaxed dinner atmosphere provides an excellent opportunity for students to ask the questions that are really important to them. During dinner students are seated according to their company preferences and/or their major, so companies can be sure that students at their table are applicable to the work they do.

The registration fee for Evening With Industry is $250, and includes one table for each company and dinner for two representatives. Registration for Evening with Industry is available with the Fall Engineering and Computing Career Fair registration and is available on the Engineering Career Center website by June 1.
