Canton Engineer For A Day Program Needs Computer Company Sponsors

The Canton Joint Engineering Council (CJEC) is looking for computer related companies (employing computer engineers) located in the Canton, Ohio area to participate in an Engineer for a Day program which offers Senior High School students opportunities to spend part of a day with an engineer during Engineers Week in February. We find that there are more and more students interested in computer engineering but not many companies available to accommodate one or more students in this discipline. If you know of a company or someone who works for a company in the Canton area that hires computer engineers, please contact Brian Werner at brian.werner@timken.com. Thanks for any input.

The next ExCom meeting is currently scheduled for Tuesday, March 12 at 6:00 pm at the Waterloo Restaurant, Waterloo Rd. Please contact Jim Dowey at jldowey@msn.com if you wish to participate. All members are welcome to attend (meals are provided).
