Industry Night 2015

The 2015 UBC CSCE Industry Night was a great success. The event welcomed representatives from 50 companies, including 30 corporate sponsors, and over 250 students to the Life Science Center’s West Atrium at UBC’s Point Grey Campus. The event offered a first-class opportunity for students, alumni and industry professionals to connect with one another. Company projects, potential job opportunities and shared interests were hot topics among the evening’s 384 attendees.

The 12 gold sponsors of the evening had the opportunity to take the stage, and showcase their companies with speeches to the crowd. UBC civil engineering student teams, including Concrete Canoe, EERI Seismic Design Team and Steel Bridge were at the event showcasing their respective projects. This unique mix and mingle event offered refreshments and food for attendees to enjoy in a comfortable atmosphere.

UBC CSCE is proud to host the largest department-specific networking event within UBC engineering, and has already started planning for next year’s event. We are very thankful for all of the support that we have received from our sponsors, who can be viewed here.
