Hello, I am the Director of Communications with the Austin Community Corps of Engineers, which is a student-lead organization at Austin Community College. We will be having an event on October 24th, 2018 from 12 PM - 3 PM called ,“Design, Invent, & Build," which is for engineering students at Austin Community College to explore the different branches and careers within engineering.

I would like to have your organization or a representative / officer from your organization to speak to students who are interested in transferring to The University of Texas at Austin or any 4-year university and to tell them about your careers, what they entail, what opportunities are available to them, and what steps they can take to pursue a successful career(s) as an engineer.

Event Description:

This event offers a chance for Austin Community College engineering students to learn more about the clubs within ACC and organizations in Austin, Texas that offer volunteer and job opportunities for them. Engineering students need access to these types of events, not only to cultivate themselves as engineers, but to develop imperative skills and to build their network for the future.
Grant: I'm responding on behalf of all the UT engineering groups that you posted the request/comment on as the response is similar. You had also reached out to Engineering Student Services in the Cockrell School and they should be responding to your request. Since the transfer student process happens through admissions at UT Austin, our engineering advisors and staff would not be the best people to share about next steps. Again, Engineering Student Services should be responding to your emailed request. — Tricia Berry Tricia Berry on October 14, 2018
