TECH Talks is Coming May 6th 2016

TECH Talks is a one-day seminar produced entirely by students from Oregon Institute of Technology, featuring speakers who are shaping the future in the fields of Technology, Engineering, Creativity and Health. It brings exciting current innovations in the TECH fields to Oregon Tech students; and presents cutting edge technologies, which help to connect them (the next generation of industry leaders) with prospective employers. The event also introduces to industry leaders, the opportunities Oregon Tech students have to develop their non-technical skills – such as writing, teamwork, and problem solving – which prepare them to be more well-rounded professionals.
