TechConnect, an annual fall event hosted by the Duke University Department of Computer Science, Pratt School of Engineering, and Career Center, brings students and employers together for networking and education.

Each year, a panel of employers is selected to provide advice to students seeking internships and full-time jobs. Through this panel presentation, students get a good understanding of characteristics employers seek as well as a realistic view of the job market for students interested in engineering and technical careers.

The panel discussion is followed by a vibrant networking event. Students from all classes are welcome to visit with employer representatives, many of whom are Duke alumni. This venue provides a less formal environment than the traditional Career Fair which takes place the following day, Wednesday September 14th, in the Bryan Center.

Our format of providing company-specific chat areas and signage for each company offers students and employers an easy way to connect with engineering and CS students.
