Fairfield University’s Academic & Career Development Center and the School of Engineering offered students professional development trips to Medtronic, BL Companies, and ASML.

Stags in the City helped my professional development because it provided the opportunity to network with companies I hope to work for one day.

— Amy Caplan ‘20

In early February, Fairfield provided engineering students with the exciting opportunity to travel and engage in a variety of professional development programs across Connecticut. With a focus on career advancement, internship building, and networking, Fairfield students met and worked with a wide variety of alumni and industry professionals.

At Medtronic, the world's largest medical technology company, students attended a presentation about the company and networked with employees who spoke to them about careers in engineering and offered helpful resume tips.  

“It was nice being able to make connections with employees at Medtronic and to ask them questions about their daily work,” said engineering major Amy Caplan ‘20. “Stags in the City helped my professional development because it provided the opportunity to network with companies I hope to work for one day." 

At BL Companies, described on its website as an "experienced provider of creative, integrated services related to architecture, engineering, environmental, and land surveying," students were given a tour of the facility and were able to meet and speak with engineers from different areas including mechanical, electrical, and architectural engineering.

After the tour, students participated in a panel discussion where they were able to ask employees questions regarding BL Companies and career paths in engineering. Mechanical engineering major Sebastian Useche Rosania ’20 stated “This was an eye-opening experience for me. I knew that mechanical engineers had a broad spectrum to choose a field of work, but construction always attracted me and visiting BL Companies showed me a side of engineering that I didn't know was there. I enjoyed meeting the people there, they were all very nice and willing to help us.”
