Viterbi School of Engineering Student Organizations
Engineers must be professionally proficient, astute and acutely aware of their responsibility to society. Student Professional Awareness Conferences or S-PACS (pronounced \"ess-paks\") explore the broader subjects that affect engineers\' careers.
S-PACs were first introduced in 1979 as a method of increasing professional awareness in a student\'s technical education. Since then, these conferences have become a strong force for improving the engineering profession. S-PACs give students an opportunity to learn from the varied experiences of successful engineers.
S-PACs are structured events where students listen to experienced engineers from diverse backgrounds speak on a topic from one of six categories: Career Growth, Working, Professional Ethics and Social Responsibility, Self-Management, Engineers and Public Policy, or The Importance of a Professional Society to You.
After the talk, students have a chance to interact with the speakers and industry representatives in an intimate, low-pressure setting. S-PACs allow corporate representatives to see what students are really like and vice versa.
The Student Professional Awareness Conference at the University of Southern California\'s Viterbi School of Engineering will take place on Monday, January 24th, from 5pm - 9pm at the Radisson Hotel near USC (3540 South Figueroa Street, Los Angeles, CA 90007). Join IEEE at USC for an evening of dining, networking, and story-telling! This year, our special guest, Michael Andrews, will share about his experiences as an engineer as gives a speech on \"Professional Adventure - Your Job Search\".
The final list of companies showing up to S-PAC is: Intel, Qualcomm, Sandia, GE Aviation, Boeing, Deloitte, Space-X, PwC, and Cypress Semiconductor.
