Overview

ALUMNI - CLICK HERE TO BECOME A MENTOR
STUDENTS - CLICK HERE TO ATTEND EVENT

Each year, McMaster Engineering hosts a networking and mentorship evening for distinguished alumni to reconnect with the Faculty of Engineering and mentor current engineering students. Although the event will look different this year on a virtual platform, there’s still a great opportunity for networking – right from the comfort of your own home!

Backpack to Briefcase, which will be held on Wednesday, January 20, 2021, will offer engineering students the opportunity to connect with alumni to discuss study skills, career development and life after university. Our students are eager to hear your insights from your days at McMaster, learn about your career paths and meet alumni who represent diverse backgrounds and interests.

We hope you are able to join us to connect with our bright students, reconnect with other alumni and faculty members and give back to your Fireball Family.

TAKE A LOOK AT LAST YEAR'S EVENT:

Virtual events are an adjustment. Although this year will look different with new challenges for attendees, like the potential for technical hiccups and the inability to network face-to-face, you are still able to:

  • Connect and share your insights with others
  • Reduce the time and financial commitments required to attend
  • And you can attend the entire conference while in your pajamas (at least from the waist down!)
