Student Networking Event at ACC 2023
Organizer: Audrey Blizard, Lily Li, Rui Huang, and Joe Drallmeier
Time: 16:30 – 18:00, Thursday, June 1, 2023
Location: Sapphire AB
This event will provide an opportunity for all interested students attending ACC to receive career advice from professionals working in industry, academia, and national laboratories during a structured event. The goal of this event is to provide an engaging experience to students that illustrates the benefits of involvement in the control community, encouraging the students’ continued participation as the future leaders in the field. Following a 15-minute introductory presentation, during which the invited professions will provide an overview of their background and areas of interest, the format will consist of three rounds of rotating round-table discussions. In each round, a group of 6-7 students will have an approximately 20-minute open discussion with one of the professional attendees, before rotating to another table and repeating this process two more times. In the final 15 minutes, students will be given open social time which will allow them to meet with any panelists with whom they did not have a rotation and exchange contact information to grow their networks.
