Career Readiness in the Classroom

Join Marina Astitha, Associate Professor, Associate Head of Graduate Education, Equity and Inclusion, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, for an updated version of her Career Everywhere Conference keynote speech. This presentation focuses on the success she has had incorporating the NACE Career Readiness Competencies into her classroom, specifically a pilot study for Environmental Engineering undergraduate students from Spring 2023. The term project was designed to highlight the applicability of the Career Readiness Competencies throughout the entire project which effectively demonstrates to students how their course content contributes to the development of proficiency for each competency. Marina will offer an in-depth summary of the timeline, activities, and outcomes for the pilot student which can be replicated for different course offerings, irrespective of content area.
