Plexus Corporation, headquartered in Neenah, WI, will be on-campus this Monday, September 16, 11:30am to 2:30pm in the CC great room. Plexus has hired numerous BE graduates over the years. They also have sponsored a number of select BE senior design projects and hire interns.
Recent MSOE alumnae who work at Plexus will be there. Here are some of the things they want to talk to you about:
- Senior Design Teams who are interested in the Sponsorship Program can ask questions or sign up to pitch their project to Plexus (Talk to your senior design instructor about this).
- MSOE Scholarship/Internship program ($6,250 + a summer internship for a student with Sophomore or Junior standing)
- Demonstration of Plexus projects, including one which was a former Senior Design project.
- Schedule of when Plexus will be back at MSOE
- Open discussions regarding academics, industry, job interviews, etc. Input on topics like:
- “Which electives should I take?”
- “I want a second opinion on my team’s plan for our Senior Design project.”
- “What are employers looking for in a job interview?”
- “What is it like to work as a design engineer?”
This is also an opportunity for you to remind/convince a potential employer of the value that MSOE BE's can provide in terms of solid ME and EE skills coupled with BE specific knowledge (physiology, cell biology, biomaterials, biomechanics, medical imaging, medical DSP, medical instrumentation, etc.).
