Students interested in learning from and connecting with STEM professionals will have the opportunity at STEM Connect, an event hosted by Stephen F. Austin State University’s College of Sciences and Mathematics at 4 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, in the Cole STEM Building, Room 401.
Representatives from Microsoft, Elliott Electric Supply, BPX Energy, Kalkomey Enterprises, NacSpace and CGI will discuss what they do and how students can prepare for their future careers.
“Through panel discussion and one-on-one dialogue, students will learn more about the high-demand careers of tomorrow and the ongoing demand for STEM professionals,” said Dr. Kimberly M. Childs, dean of the College of Sciences and Mathematics.
The event will give students a chance to interact with professionals in their field in a unique way, said Dr. Cindy Kalkomey, SFA alumna and co-founder of Kalkomey Enterprises.
“It’s never too early to start forging those relationships — with your fellow STEM students, with your professors and, when possible, with people working in the industry you hope to join,” Kalkomey said.
