Technology Summit & Career Exploration

Information for Educators

In 2013, we had over 300 high school seniors and juniors visited the VWCC for the Technology Summit, an event that was designed to explore career opportunities in the fields of engineering and IT Technology.

This year's event is being expanded into a STEM-H Summit.

In addition to the employer displays and opportunities to interact with VWCC students, the 2014 Technology Summit and Career Exploration event will include tours and demonstrations in the School of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics as well as the Schools of Health Professions and Building, Trades and Technology. Students can expect to experience the WOW factor and much more as employers will provide interactive demonstrations of the products and services that each produce right here in the Roanoke Valley.

The goal of the Technology Summit and Career Exploration Fair is to continue developing a career pipeline by offering exciting and unique opportunities for students who want to pursue a technical career in the Roanoke Valley. VWCC faculty are staff are excited about this year's event and hope that you will mark your calendars to participate in what will be an energized, information-packed affair.
