Minutes 2/26/2014

Today we talked about ECE corporate relations with Susan Farrington. She spent some time talking about her new role in the department as well as current corporate relations plans. We discussed the co-op program and the merits of promoting it further in the curriculum. Susan offered to look into bringing in more EE recruitment opportunities and SAC will in turn compile a list of companies that students would like to see do more recruitment at CMU.

We also spent some time with Dave Fortuna, the Student Relations Manager, discussing some ideas for future events and how to build the ECE community.
