inDuke members are invited to attend and participate in any of the scheduled seminars, colloquia, and other interactive technical events.
Duke Frontiers is an annual event designed to emphasize the collaboration between industry and university research efforts and to foster mutually beneficial relationships between Duke's science faculty and industry. Attendees include corporate and university researchers and associated staff, students interested in research careers in a corporate environment, corporate university relations staff, and others interested in cutting-edge research collaboration. Pictured is the May 2006 Duke Smart House demonstration.
TechConnect, hosted by the Duke University Department of Computer Science, Pratt School of Engineering, and Career Center brings students and employers together. Each year, a panel of employers is selected to provide advice to students seeking internships and full-time jobs. Through this panel presentation, students get a good understanding of characteristics employers seek as well as a realistic view of the job market for students interested in engineering and technical careers.
The panel discussion is followed by a vibrant networking event. Students from all classes are welcome to visit with employer representatives, many of whom are Duke alumni. This venue provides a less formal environment than the traditional Career Fair which takes place the following day.
