Engineering & Science Fair (E-Fair) DirectorE-Fair is a two-day event where engineering disciplines present what their field entails and the real life applications of their field. The event typically feature speeches delivered by college administrators, professors, and student leaders, an interactive society fair, and tours. Over 20 STEM related organizations hold interactive events designed to allow students hands on view into multiple engineering concepts. Industry representatives will be invited as well as current UF students to showcase the research they are currently conducting. Prospective students will have the chance to meet current engineering students and hear their personal accounts of the engineering student experience
Engineering Talk (E-Talk) DirectorThis event features a series of guest speakers in the science field, preferably engineering, who will deliver a speech to the UF student body about the importance of modern engineering in today’s growing society along with the benefits and positive repercussions of interdisciplinary collaboration. The speakers should make direct ties between the two with the goal of underscoring the relationship among society, non-engineers, and engineering today. In doing so, the event should also highlight the importance of creativity, innovation, and collaboration in an effort to appeal to a diverse student body audience beyond the College of Engineering. (*This is a new event and therefore the structure of this event is subject to change based on the selected event director. It may include a variety of speakers and/or demonstrations so long as it connects engineers and non-engineers)
Engineering Leadership Forum (ELF) DirectorELF is a social-professional event offering students the opportunity to learn about professionals’ careers at respected engineering establishments. ELF provides professional insight for students seeking future leadership, internship, co-op, or full-time career opportunities in the industry. Students will interact with the distinguished faculty and company representatives through a set of workshops, panels, and a networking session.
Engineering Festival (E-Fest) Co-Directors [Activities Director | Performance Director]E-Fest features live music, free food, and a chance to meet like-minded both in and beyond the College of Engineering. Some of the many activities that will be available to participate in include, inflatables, tie-dye shirts, caricatures, and dunk tanks. The event follows a format similar to that of a carnival and is organized by Benton Engineering Council, Audio Engineering Society, Swamp Records, and other great organizations. Local Gainesville artists perform live music and student organizations organize activity booths for the E-Fest attendees. This event is one of the largest Engineers’ Week events and is open to the public.
Closing Ceremony DirectorClosing ceremony officially marks the end of UF’s annual Engineers’ Week. The event welcomes all who were involved with the planning of Engineers’ Week and those representing student organizations at all Engineers’ Week events. The State of the College takes place as part of the closing ceremonies. During this, the dean for the college of engineering addresses the student body regarding the future of the college while discussing students’ concerns from the SWOT analysis. Food is provided during a sit down dinner and Engineers’ Week society awards, such as E-Cup, will also be distributed at this time.
ESL Event DirectorThis event would be a one day competition designed to address an engineering-related problem in the Gainesville community. Many of us chose to be engineers because we’re excited to use creative solutions to make a positive impact on the world. Engineering-related community service is an excellent way to remind us of our passions.
Battle-Bot Event DirectorThis event is a one day where teams from different organizations, schools, communities, build their own 3 pound battle bot which is then pitted against battle bots of other teams in a fight to the death.
