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, an invited 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 on September 12.

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.

Employer Registration

Registration for fall TechConnect 2012 is now closed. Please contact Kirsten Shaw for an update on space available.
