Honor society hosts Q/A sessions with local engineering community

The WMU chapter of the engineering honor society Tau Beta Pi hosts a public forum on how to succeed as an engineer every year in celebration of “π Day” (March 14th).  Panelists offer their insights to engineering students on a variety of topics, including job-seeking strategies, what engineers do day-to-day, and how to develop as an engineering professional.
