Student Industry Panel/Reception
The Student Industry Panel is your chance to learn career development
insights from top-level industry professionals. The panel
will be conducted on Tuesday afternoon from 3:00 pm - 5:30 pm. Professionals
from the microelectronics industries, industry recruiters, and engineering
educators will describe and discuss how their education, interests
and career experiences led to their current positions. Students will
also learn current industry expectations and what they should be doing
now for their long-term career development. A Reception will immediately
follow where students will have the opportunity to network one-on-one
with industry panelists and each other.
Professional Development Course (PDC) Monitor
Students have the opportunity to serve as PDC Monitors. One
student monitor will be assigned to each of the 16 PDCs during the
Symposium. Course monitors will assist PDC Instructors (distribute
handouts, monitor lights, collect evaluations, etc.). Monitors will
receive all handouts presented during the course. Monitors are assigned
on a first-come, first-served basis. So, sign up early to get the
PDC of your choice by emailing Rayma Gollopp (firstname.lastname@example.org)
with your top 3 choices.
Best Student Paper
A review committee will attend all technical presentations
by student authors to evaluate and determine the Best Student
Student papers will be evaluated on technical knowledge, presentation
skills, written manuscript, and audience interaction. The winning
student will receive a certificate and recognition in the magazine Advancing Microelectronics.
The IMAPS Employment Center will be open Tuesday,
