DSC_0104

The IEEE Buenaventura Section and EMBS chapter joined the American Association of University Women and the California Lutheran University on Feb 10 to organize a STEM Career Night that attracted 250 middle school, high school, and college students and parents. The event started in late afternoon with an opportunity for Biomedical Engineering students from CLU to ask questions about finding internships and jobs to the panelists and other industry professionals. The evening then opened to three talks about the jobs of the future, what background and schooling is needed for  STEM professions, and what it is really like to work in science careers. The panel included Pat Jacobs, President and CEO of Advanced Personnel Profiles, Vivienne Payne, PhD, scientist at Jet Propulsion Lab and Nathalie Gosset, Sr. Dir. of Market and Technology Evaluation at AMI USC.  CLU Professors Robert Rumer and Craig Reinhart facilitated the Q&A sessions  with the biomedical engineering students. Jacobs, Gosset, Rumer, and Reinhart are active officers with the IEEE Buenaventura Section.
