Wednesday, April 19, 2017
The CI is dedicated to enhancing the future workforce in the construction industry by creating and participating in University of Hartford CETA student events. These up and coming young professionals are leading the adoption of the newest technology resources as they enter the industry.
On April 18, 2017 our CI and CETA Mix and Mingle event took place in the Architecture Studio on the University of Hartford campus. Students showcased their work to the professionals in attendance, including CI members from Gilbane Building Company, JCJ Architecture, Id3A, Tecton Architects, Clohessy Harris & Kaiser, LLC and Eversource.
CETA student and Construction Institute Student Organization President Mutazz Bulter (Senior, Architectural Engineering Technology major) said that student feedback was very positive, and that this is the type of event that students ask for. "I personally felt that it was a great event. I liked the atmosphere of it where it wasn't too formal and we were able to be candid with professionals about what we want for our futures and our current experiences as college students and aspiring young professionals.", said Butler. The students were also pleased with the number of firms that attended.
Additional student feedback was also positive.
