This is a wonderful opportunity to meet undergraduate and graduate students from 70+ science majors at Texas A&M University. See List of Science Majors and Degrees (PDF).

Through challenging courses and lab work, many of these students have acquired strong laboratory skills. Texas A&M students have also participated in a variety of extracurricular activities that have enabled them to develop strong communication and leadership skills.

Undergraduate and graduate students will be interested in internships and full-time opportunities as well as graduate and professional school opportunities. Remember, you do not need to have immediate job openings to attend this event.
