OCEA is hosting their spring conference at DeVry University in Columbus Ohio on April 26th and 27th. There will be venders in the exhibit hall, excellent networking opportunities for young BMED/BMET/MEC-E/and ECET peoples.
Based on the venue, this is likely to be a smallish event, perfect for people who are new or wanting to break into industry. It should be an non-intimidating atmosphere with people who are eager to talk about what they do in industry and what they plan to do. You’ll have to take Friday off to experience the full event, however it may be worth it if you’re really interested to get your toes into the industry.
Networking is a critical part of the sciences these days. Most of our new tech is collaborative in efforts (See the new Mechanical Arm for an example). Being able to communicate cross disciplines is invaluable. If you’re free, or can be in the Columbus Area, it wouldn’t hurt you to attend!
