TechConnect, an 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 on January 26th 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.

For Students

No registration is required. All Computer Science and Pratt students are invited and encouraged to attend: BS, MEMP, MEng, MS, PhD. See TechConnect FAQs for answers to common questions.
