Students from UKZN, along with private companies that took part in the 2016 annual Engineering Career Fair held on Howard College campus on 5 August, only had good things to say about this year’s bumper event.
Among the many employers that exhibited at the 2016 Career Fair were Goodyear, Unilever, FNB, Denel Dynamics, ATNS and Defy.
‘We were delighted with the positive response from companies,’ said Career Development Officer within the College of Agriculture, Engineering and Science, Ms Karuna Mahadave.
Students from Engineering had a busy start to the semester with over 30 companies attending the Career Fair and a further 10 visiting the campus for presentations during the second and third weeks of August.
The UKZN Engineering Career Fair provided a platform for graduating students to meet potential recruiters and obtain more information about opportunities available in the world of work.
It also exposed first - and second-year students to the working world and showed them the options available to them upon completion of their degrees.
