The IEEE student group here at OSU frequently host various members of industry to come and visit Oregon State, host presentations, and visit wth prospective engineering graduates of OSU. This is a great opportunity for companies to get involved and meet with prospective OSU engineers. On the flip side, students get a chance to meet with industry representatives and benefit from their knowledge and wisdom.

We usually see between 30 and 80 students attend, depending largely on student schedules and their interest in the topic. The seminars should not be 'highly- technical', but we have had many technical topics presented. Care was taken to make sure that the topic would apply to a moderately wide range of engineering education and interests.

The goal of the IEEE Seminar is to give students an early exposure to the world outside of academics, and to make it useful and interesting for Freshman through Seniors/Grads.
