Engineering and computer science majors are invited to attend the fall Tech Fest at the Northridge Center to seek job opportunities and learn more about their respective fields Sept. 22 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Students can attend workshops and seek career advice directly from business professionals, said LaTesha Hagler, outreach coordinator at the college of engineering and computer science.

“This job fair will give students an idea of the many career opportunities waiting for them after college,” she said.

Over 25 companies in the computer science and engineering fields are expected to attend, including Intel, Google Inc. and the California Department of Transportation (CalTrans), Hagler said.

A complete list of the organizations set to participate can be found on the Career Center website.

“These professionals will be available to answer any questions students might have regarding their companies,” Hagler said. “They’re also here to inspire students and illustrate the many possible careers available to them.”

While Tech Fest is designed for students majoring in the computer science, technology and engineering fields, the event is open to the entire campus, Hagler said.

“It’ll be a great learning experience,” she said.
