Adam Watson, NIU College of Engineering and Engineering Technology (CEET) student, presented his undergraduate research at the American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA), Chicago section student night.
In attendance were five other NIU students, as well as undergraduate and graduate students from Illinois State University, Benedictine University, and Purdue. Other NIU students in attendance were Brent Frasier, Corey McCullough, Lacey LaBelle, and Rob Johnson. The students who attended the event were given the opportunity to network, listen to researchers discuss their work in the field, as well as find a job. This was a way for the CEET students to take the next step in their careers.
The AIHA student night was also a place for students to network with potential employers, and in some cases, find a job. “We got to network before I presented, and have lunch afterward,” Watson said. “Presenting was a great way to break the ice with the professionals, since most of them wanted to talk to me about my presentation.”
The AIHA student nights are held every year to highlight student research and encourage networking between students and professionals.
