“Theory 2 Practice” is a monthly series where outside presenters from business and industry visit us for a one-hour presentation and discussion. The sessions will show how the engineering theory taught in the classroom connects with realities of the working world. Each month will cover a different topic and the session is open to all students and faculty. Free pizza and sodas will be provided.
