A five-member biomedical engineering team from Medtronic, a multinational medical device company with a division in Santa Rosa, CA, visited the SSU Engineering Department on November 2nd to organize a career event. Insightful and informative presentations by the Medtronic team were followed by breakout sessions. EE and ECE students appreciated the conversational nature of the round-table breakout sessions and the opportunity to engage with the professionals one-on-one to learn about career opportunities, experiences as engineers, and industry trends. The event was jointly hosted by the EE Club and the Society of Women in Engineering (SWE).

The Department of Engineering values experiential education and collaborations with local and regional industries. Efforts like this highlight the department's partnership with the vibrant North Bay industry community.
