The national priority in education can be summed up in a four-letter acronym: STEM. And that’s understandable. A country’s proficiency in science, technology, engineering and mathematics is vital in generating economic growth, advancing scientific innovation and creating good jobs.
The department’s 21st biannual Career Development Workshop (CDW) saw a flood of students to the Reitz Union’s Grand Ballroom on Sept. 25, 2017. More than 860 students stopped by during the four-hour event. A mix of undergraduate students, graduate students and alumni interested working in computer science or engineering fields came to interview with 31 companies.
Stop by the Chamber Room on the ground floor of the Reitz Union on Thursday, Sept. 28, to listen to Davyeon Ross, co-founder and COO of DDSports Inc., share highlights of his professional, athletic and entrepreneurial journey, and the emotional highs and lows while navigating the roller coaster of entrepreneurship.
Hear Davyeon’s unique insight into building an exciting sports tech company while traveling from the West Indies throughout the US, Europe, Asia and Canada and key learnings from years of playing competitive and college basketball.
