STEP Professional Development
Seminars will provide you with the opportunity to learn about the opportunities and resources available at Virginia Tech as well as what companies expect of entry level engineers. Guest speakers will come from career services, student organizations, various engineering departments, and industry.
Weekly meetings with an academic advisor are held to facilitate discussions about academic performance issues and academic opportunities.
Learning to balance your activities and classes is key to your success. Adhering to STEP's intensive 5-week schedule will help you develop your own study schedule and tackle procrastination taking into account your personal characteristics.
STEP participants have the unique opportunity to attend leadership workshops developed by sponsoring companies. In prior years, General Motors, Deloitte, Lockheed Martin, General Electric, and Cummins Engines have facilitated these workshops.
Seminars from campus offices such as Cooke Counseling Center, the Women’s Center, VT SERVE, and others will assist you in growing your network of campus services to ensure you have all of the support you need to be successful.
