PSEC Events

The Council sponsors or operates several events throughout the year. We invite you to participate. Please have a look at our calendar below to see upcoming events.

  • Mentor Nights – We hold several of these events throughout the year at local colleges. It is an opportunity for students to interact with the local engineering community to learn about the breadth of engineering disciplines that are practiced here.
  • Engineering Banquet – Held every year in February during Engineers Week. This is the event where the PSEC presents the Engineering Awards.
  • Engineering Fair – Held every year in February at the Museum of Flight. This is a chance for youngsters to come out and see what engineering is all about and show off their engineering projects.
  • Officers Workshop – Another annual event where the many member societies of the PSEC discuss what we are doing and how we can work together.

Here is our events calendar. You may also want to import it to your calendar via icalendar.

  • Skills Workshop: Peer Review Resume Session (SWE-PNW)
    Date: March 29, 2017 8:30 PM - 9:30 PM

    Location: Online


    Description:

    Please join us for a peer review resume workshop, hosted by some of your SWE PNW Section Representatives!

    When is the last time you looked at your professional resume? Have you had a chance to have a friend or peer take a look and give you feedback? Are you stuck on how to represent something and could use some ideas? Then this is the skills workshop for you!

    It's always a good idea to take a fresh look at your resume and even get new ideas from others, whether you are just starting your professional resume or looking to update your long list of experience.

    In this peer review session, attendees will be asked to share their professional resume with the group, actively participate in the discussion both on their resume and others, and provide suggestion and encouragement.

    We hope you'll join us for one of the following sessions:
    * Thursday, March 16 from 6:30 - 7:30 pm
    * Tuesday, March 21 from 7:30 - 8:30 pm
    * Wednesday, March 29 from 8:30 - 9:30 pm

    Please note the following logistics:
    * This will be an online event through Google Hangouts
    * Hangout information will be provided to those that RSVP through the Eventbrite
    * These sessions will NOT be recorded or live broadcast due to the nature of the content
    * Because of the limits on attendees for Google Hangouts, please only sign up for one session
