NSBE Innovations Corner (formerly known as the NSBE Tech Expo)
The vision for the NSBE Innovations Corner is for companies to interactively showcase their latest R&D projects for the purpose of educating the NSBE membership and marketing themselves as an exciting place to work. Companies will setup learning stations, workstations, and activities to simulate the experience of engineer at their company. Various fields of engineering and applied science will be represented. Participants will walk away with an understanding of what the day-to-day work is like for an engineer at a particular company and learn about research ideas they can help realize. Companies will have a wonderful opportunity to persuade NSBE members to apply to intern, co-op, or work for them. As an auxiliary to the career fair, companies will have a place to interactively show potential employees what they can look forward to if they work for them. NSBE Special Interest Groups (SIGs) will also be highlighted in this area of the Expo.
