Engineering Expo is one of the largest career fairs in the Midwest. It takes the efforts of a team of hardworking student volunteers and Engineering Career Services staff members to provide the best possible event for student job seekers and recruiters.
The Engineering Expo student volunteers are managed by student coordinators. They handle everything from selecting the date, booking the venue, publicizing the event to students, organizing teams of student volunteers, to day-of-event logistics like table and display organization, refreshments and more! Engineering Career Services manages employer publicity, event registration, finances, and event inquiries. You can direct your questions to or call 614-292-6651 between 8:00am and 5:00pm EST.
The 2018 Engineering Expo Coordinator role is shared by three students:
Raghad Kodvawala (B.S. Biomedical Engineering, Spring 2020)
Kathleen Whalen (B.S. Food Agricultural & Biological Engineering, Spring 2019)
Abigail Warburton (B.S. Food Agricultural & Biological Engineering, Spring 2019)
The Engineering Expo is the major fund-raising event for Engineers' Council. E-Council is composed of representatives from engineering student organizations and project teams. The E-Council Faculty Advisor is David L. Tomasko, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education and Student Services and Professor, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.
