The College of Technology and Computer Science at East Carolina University will host an Employer & Student Networking Day from noon-4 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 20 in Harvey Hall at the Murphy Center.

Approximately 50 businesses are expected to attend the free, annual event. All undergraduate and graduate students are invited, particularly those pursuing a degree in the fields of computer science, engineering, construction management and technology systems.

Students are encouraged to research any companies they might be interested in working for before attending the event.

“We are committed to building…alliances between our college, our programs, and the business community,” said Dr. Leslie Pagliari, associate dean for academic affairs at the college.

Members of the business community will also have the chance to converse directly with faculty and college administrators during a lunch from noon-1:30 p.m. Students will arrive and can meet with company representatives from 1:30-4 p.m.
