Student/Industry Networking Invitation

Save this date: April 21st, 2010

The NES/OSA is having an Industry/Student Networking evening at the Boston University Photonics Center on Wed April 21st. We are inviting the local optics industry to share experiences with students who are curious about what one does in optics after graduation. Students from the area universities are being invited though their local OSA Student chapters.

The meeting will begin with networking including refreshments and a light meal, followed by a panel of up to four 10 min talks and a Q&A session, finishing with time for further discussions. Our industry panel will draw speakers from New England's diverse industrial base such as Aerospace, Metrology, Lighting and Bio-Medical.
We encourage our regular members bring their stories, feel free to share any information about your companies or institutions, and we welcome postings for jobs or internships.

Information is available at NESOSA.ORG and will be updated to include our panel members over the next couple of weeks.
