Evening With Industry
As the excitement has mounted, the
Evening With Industry Committee has been
hard at work on this year's rapidly approaching
event. Evening With Industry, the annual
banquet sponsored by the Society of Women
Engineers, brings engineering students and
practicing engineers together. In the past,
companies such as Proctor and Gamble, Rock-
well International, and Honeywell have helped
make this event a proven success. Students
enjoy learning more about present-day industry
and existing career options from leading profes-
sionals. Companies appreciate this opportunity
to gain exposure on campus and advertise
possible job openings. The evening will include
hors d'oeuvres, dinner, a guest speaker, and an
awards presentation. This event is free to all
S.W.E. members and is $12 for non-members.
Note, S.W.E. membership is $10 and is open to
all engineering students. Mark February 15 on
your calenders now. Deadline for reservations is
December 22. Pick up forms on the S.W.E. board
and return them to the S.W.E. mailbox, both are
in the ME Lobby. For additional information,
contact Lori Tatsuguchi at 255-6621.
COLLEGE CENTENNIAL
The College of Engineering will
be celebrating its one hundredth anniver-
sary in 1989. The College will hold a
wide variety of events to celebrate the
Centennial. Plans include special
seminars, lectures, and programs, as well
as a centennial "birthday party" on
February 25 at (Eliot) Union South.
Seminars are scheduled weekly for
Spring semester 1988-1989 and Fall
semester 1989-1990. They will feature
outstanding indiviuals of society and can
be taken for one credit each semester.
The seminars are open to the public. The
Wisconsin Engineer will highlight the
College of Engineering Centennial in a
Wisconsin Engineer, December 1988
College of Engineering Photo Contest
The College of Engineering is holding a photo contest for graduate students,
undergraduates, faculty and staff. Anyone having a connection to College
of Engi-
neering projects or programs is eligible to enter, including non-engineering
students
supervised by engineering faculty or employed in engineering programs.
The photographs may represent microscopic views of engineered objects or
engineering materials, computer-generated or computer processed images that
have
some engineering meaning (not purely "computer art"), or other
visually interesting
photographs. Some other examples are infrared, x-ray, high-speed, or other
novel
views of common "everyday" objects.
A $300 cash prize will be awarded to the 1st-place winner and a $200 cash
prize to the 2nd-place winner in both categories of black & white and
color. In
addition, up to five $100 prize winners will be selected from each of the
two categories
(14 winners in all).
The deadline for entry is February 1, 1989. Deliver entries to Associate
Dean
John Wiley in 411 ERB. The primary selection criterion will be visual and
artistic
impact rather than technical or scientific significance. Subject variety,
technical
significance, and relation to important college projects will be used as
secondary or
tie-breaking criteria.
OOPS!!!
The Wisconsin Engineer unintentionally
omitted Gregory Lillegard's name from the
"Letters from Japan" article in our last issue.
Lillegard is one of the three students from UW-
Madison studying engineering in Japan this year.
We apologize for the error.
