  • facility control systems/I.T.
  • design/build engineering

This is a great opportunity to participate in roundtable discussions with current industry professionals. You will learn more about the industry and make connections to help prepare for your career.

You will also have access to the Expo to see the latest technology and products in the industry. You can network with a number of ag-related suppliers, and a free lunch is provided. 

Student Day concludes with a networking event. Interact with other students, grain handling professionals and leaders in GEAPS – and have a good time.
