Grab breakfast with fellow engineers
On Thursday May 24 from 9:00AM to 10:00AM, engineers can grab a breakfast on us in the exhibition hall. Bringing together engineers from every level, this unique networking event is back by popular demand. Caltech graduate, David Huynh commented “It’s been really great, just off the bat, we were enjoying the Engineers’ breakfast and were able to speak to an engineer from Northrop Grumman and get his insights on the field which is really useful for us. The ability to connect with someone who has a lot more experience but has similar goals is really valuable.”
