Call for SWE Speakers: South Seattle College

South Seattle College (SSC) in West Seattle prepares students for transfer into baccalaureate engineering and computer science degree programs.

We are looking for engineers who are interested in visiting any of our classes to describe the work they are doing or reflect back to when they were students. The students appreciate hearing these stories from the engineering community!

Friday is the SSC engineering orientation class from 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm (except for Veteran's Day or Thanksgiving).

There are also other opportunities during other weekdays.
