HOUGHTON — The Huskies are off and racing.
Students of Michigan Technological University officially launched the Michigan Tech Student Chapter of The Engineering Society of Detroit Wednesday in a luncheon with ESD officials.
Attending were Wayne D. Pennington, Dean of the Michigan Tech College of Engineering; Leonard Bohmann, Michigan Tech engineering associate dean, who organized the session; ESD executive director Robert Magee; ESD Director of Membership Heather Lilley; and ESD Director of Communications and Public Relations Matt Roush.
Magee told the students that ESD could help them fill the gaps that university educations and professional technical societies don’t always provide, from leadership devleopment to networking to navigating the corporate world.
It also offers students a chance to network and get noticed by ESD’s 140 corporate members, which include some of the biggest names in the Michigan high-tech economy.
ESD also gives its college student members an opportunity to give back to younger students through its activities for middle school and high school students.
