We invite you to a symposium and luncheon hosted by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. In keeping with the mission of NC State’s College of Engineering, this morning symposium is an interactive dialogue that focuses on expanding efforts to increase participation from underrepresented groups in engineering.

Keynote delivered by Dr. Harold Martin, Chancellor, North Carolina A&T State University

Panel moderated by Dr. Christine Grant, Associate Dean for Faculty Advancement, College of Engineering, NC State University
