With sessions focusing on their very specific informational needs, the 2011 NASCC: The Steel Conference is an excellent place for engineering and architectural students.
“From the student’s perspective there are some really interesting things going on at NASCC this year,” said Brian Quinn, one of the organizers of the Students Connecting with Industry Sessions program. It starts with two seminars Thursday morning featuring career advice and tips on leadership, and the afternoon Direct Connect session allows students to network with several companies and leaders in structural engineering and the steel profession. Students are also encouraged to explore the exhibition hall and attend other sessions.
As always, students who are AISC members (membership is available for free to qualified students) receive free admission to NASCC including the SCIS program. To learn more about becoming a student member, go to www.aisc.org/join.
Students who attend the full SCIS program will receive free admission to the conference dinner Thursday evening at Heinz Field. Additionally, they are eligible for a $100 stipend to use toward travel expenses.
“NASCC offers students an opportunity to see aspects of the steel industry they wouldn’t ordinarily be exposed to,” said Nancy Gavlin, AISC’s director of education. “And it’s fun.”
