College of Science and Technology Career Day

BU’s College of Science and Technology Career Day, held on Nov. 15, exposed students to many different career opportunities, internships, research and graduate studies available upon graduation. This was done through the interaction with alumni, businesses, and professionals who work in the field of science and technology.

Discussion sessions, business and organizational booths, and a free networking lunch gave students plenty of access to the professionals. More than 50 alumni were present representing a wide variety of science and technology disciplines such as the U.S. Census Bureau, USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Services, Geisinger Janet Weis Children’s Hospital, The Washington Center, Innovative Development, among others. #COSTCareers
