PEPCO Info Session During E-Week (This Friday)

PEPCO, a local power and energy company, is anxious for GW’s engineering students to explore employment opportunities within its organization. In particular, PEPCO seeks engineering students in the fields of civil, mechanical, and electrical engineering.  Students with minors in sustainability should also plan to attend. To that end, PEPCO managers are hosting a luncheon at their offices this Friday, February 21, from 11:30 am  until 2 pm. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet with, and to speak with, PEPCO’s hiring managers. This site visit also aligns well with Engineers Week!
