Connecting ACS with Industry

The American Chemical Society (ACS) local sections of Chicago and Joliet are co-hosting an undergraduate research symposium on the campus of Lewis University with a specific focus on industry connections. Framed around a student poster session and oral presentations, industry partners will participate in two directed discussion panels. The first panel will describe a variety of industry careers, the second panel will provide career advice for students interested in industrial positions. The day will conclude with round table breakout sessions with the industry representatives in attendance, where students will have the opportunity for further, more intimate discussion. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided during the event.
