Rail Industry Information Events

There will be three separate Rail Industry information events on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. See the details below….all companies have multiple full-time and internship positions available for students with various degrees, so don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy some pizza and good discussions with industry experts.





Upcoming MBA Info Session

Michigan Tech’s School of Business & Economics will be having an information session for students that are interested in earning their MBA after their Undergraduate degree.

Railroad Night!

Attention Students!

Looking for a full-time job or internship? If you are interested in the Rail Industry please attend Railroad Night, because some companies will only be attending this event, instead of the Career Fair and they are interviewing.  The 7th Annual Railroad Night will be held February 21, 2012 from 7-9:30 p.m. at the Shelden Grill.   Tickets can be purchased in DOW, Dillman, ME-EM, and Fisher for $3. This covers admission and a meal.  No other University in the nation has an event like this and it is a great way to network with Rail Industry leaders.  For the full itinerary please see the attached document.

UPDATE:  I wanted to fill you in on an important change in the Noyce fellowships to support science, math, and engineering majors who wish to become K-12 teachers.  We have substantially increased the stipend for those selected to become Noyce Fellows and I thought this might be of interest to some of your advisees.

The size of the awards to successful undergraduate applicants are now $20,000 per year for up to 2 years.  Because the Noyce project will end in approximately 18 months, it is essential that we recruit a sizable class of students for next fall.

Please encourage students to attend if they have even some interest in this opportunity.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for your help in recruiting excellent science and math teachers,

Brad Baltensperger, Chair of the Department of Cognitive and Learning Sciences
