Trine alumni respond to successful industry night
ANGOLA, Ind. – Trine University alumni stepped forward Oct. 19 during the 2011 Career Services Industry Night, which was spearheaded by career services assistant director Terry Johnson.
Approximately 200 students were treated to corporate presentations in Fabiani Theatre by Beckman Coulter (Indianapolis); Biomet (Warsaw, Ind.); Commonwealth Engineers (Indianapolis); Cummins (Columbus, Ind.); GE Aviation (Cincinnati, Ohio) and Parker Hannifin (Syracuse, Ind.). The presentations educated students about various industries and opportunities.
Seven graduates and current co-op students represented four of the six companies that presented.
