The Symposium aims to highlight some of the recent movements in the energy field such as technological innovations, climate change, consumer trends, political shifts and more.
Experts, specialists, CEOs, researchers and representatives of renowned institutions will present an overview of the challenges currently in the energy sector today and to discuss the multitude of career opportunities with our undergraduate and graduate students. The Symposium will feature Dr. Jared Cohon, President Emeritus of Carnegie Mellon University as the keynote speaker. Following the keynote address there will be an informative panel discussion in the area of entrepreneurship and novel technologies in energy, as well as, future career opportunities in energy. After the formal program concludes, attendees will have the chance to network and converse with industry representatives from private, public, and not-for-profit energy sectors.
Both Carnegie Mellon students and industry leaders alike will benefit as we explore the present and future career opportunities across the energy sectors. We believe that this event will provide an excellent forum where students and prospective employers can join together to enhance the future of Energy and promote an affordable, stable, and environmentally sensitive energy system for the greatest benefit of all.
