Next event

Join us for our next talk on Thursday, April 28th! A panel of three Yale alumni will share their perspectives on the diverse opportunities and career paths available in the electrical engineering field.

This will be a hybrid event, so you can join us in person or on Zoom. Pizza and refreshments will be served!
