The National ASCE Convention will be held in New Orleans this year.  Through the generosity of the Acadiana Branch of ASCE, we have the opportunity to send two of our students to the convention.
This a great chance to meet with people from around the country, attend educational sessions, and learn about the real world of engineering outside the classroom.  ASCE is the voice of engineering - and this is your opportunity to keep up with the future of the profession.
For our October 23 meeting, Dustin Corns, P.E. will be speaking about opportunities at NUCOR Vulcraft.   Dustin is a Design Supervisor at NUCOR's Grapeland, Texas plant.  He'll talk about NUCOR and his experience as an engineer.
While NUCOR does offer summer internships for students at various levels of education, it will be particularly beneficial for seniors to attend this meeting.  Please make plans to attend, and have questions ready to ask Dustin.  For more information about NUCOR, visit their site
We'll plan on having refreshments, and Dustin will be around for a few minutes answering questions and visiting with students.  Please dress professionally and bring copies of your resume.
