GM Day at Missouri S&T will be held Wednesday, Oct. 1. Representatives from General Motors Corp. will be on campus at the Havener Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to discuss career opportunities with students and accept resumes for intern and cooperative positions.
GM vehicles, including the Malibu Hybrid built at the Fairfax assembly plant and the high-performance Corvette ZR1, will be on display outside the Havener Center.
All students are welcome to attend the special presentation, “General Motor’s Approach to Environment and Energy Issues,” and the Missouri S&T and GM student presentation, “My Volt Experience,” at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30, in the St. Pat’s Ballroom of the Havener Center.
GM is one of the largest employers of Missouri S&T graduates. “We are one of their target schools,” says Lea-Ann Morton, director of the university’s Career Opportunities Center. “They come here to make their presence known and to attract top students. GM is making a huge investment in Missouri S&T.”
In addition to recruiting Missouri S&T’s students, GM makes annual donations in support of scholarships, diversity, student design activities, faculty recognition, curriculum development and engineering advances. GM also supports Missouri S&T’s Engineers Without Borders chapter and Partners for the Advancement of Collaborative Engineering Education program (PACE), a corporate effort to encourage the development of engineers, designers and managers who are prepared to enter the work force at a high level of expertise.
Students graduating in 2010-12 and majoring in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer engineering are encouraged to stop by and talk to GM recruiters.
