Industry Relations

We are grateful to have notable companies in the Phoenix region showing willingness to interact with all our members and impart valuable knowledge. Our technical programs with them include hands-on workshops and company info-sessions that helps in decreasing the skill gap between the industry and the university. It creates technical awareness for the students to know about the current skills required to work in an industry and listen to experiences of industry professionals helping them to shape their future. After the sessions undertaken by these esteemed companies, we tend to have a brief session on the career opportunities and know directly from university managers what skills they look for in an engineering student.

We wholeheartedly thank the following companies for collaborating with us for various events over the past years and look forward to have their representative for our future events.
