Science Pro

It’s all about making career connections.

An industry professional smiles and shakes hands with a student across a table. Their shirt reads "SIEMENS."

Science students from all disciplines meet with professionals at Science Pro to learn and network.

Every year, the College hosts Science Pro, an innovative career program to encourage students to explore career options, hone their professional skills and build and develop their professional networks by connecting with alumni, employers and industries.

Science Pro is a good first step in your career exploration. Whether your path is clear, or you’re wondering what’s OUT THERE, Science Pro is your chance to meet science professionals, explore careers and grow your professional community.

It is never too early to start planning for your career. Whether you’re in your first year, or about to defend your PhD thesis, there’s something for you at Science Pro! Join us this year for our three evenings of career-building experiences to begin charting the path to your future — whatever that looks like for you.

This year we will be playing networking bingo and engaging with a panel of alumni and professionals.

Science Pro was on Tuesday, January 23rd, 2024

The benefits of Science Pro

What will I learn that I won't learn in my classes?

Classes are only part of your college experience. To maximize the return on your investment in college, you need to start making connections that can launch your career. Science Pro is the career trajectory push to help you land those internships and experiences.

Networking is an effective way to ensure you have access to at least two career-related experiences before your senior year.

But networking seems intimidating.

Think of networking as the verb of building community. The good news is, you’re already doing it! Think about the number of people you have met since you began college or the number of friends and acquaintances you already have. These folks are your network now, and will also be your network later in your career. Career networking is not so different from social networking. Showing up for conversations prepared to listen and ask questions is also networking. Science Pro professionals want to meet and talk with you. Don't miss this opportunity.
