The Leadership in Engineering Conference brings in a diverse group of company representatives and speakers in an effort to educate and work with our engineering students. The focus of the conference is to help students recognize and learn the value of leadership skills in various engineering fields and help foster the students' skills.
The LEC is an opportunity for students to explore beyond their classes and learn how engineers lead in a variety of industries from the leaders themselves, network with experienced engineers and recruiters, and develop their own leadership skills.Caleb Goertel, 2016 LEC Chair
The Student Engineers’ Council at Virginia Tech is a non-profit organization focusing on fostering a professional and social network for students across all engineering disciplines by organizing events such as E-week, Engineering Expo, and the Leadership in Engineering Conference. The SEC aims to facilitate communication among students, design teams, employers, and the College of Engineering. Ultimately, our mission is to provide students with the tools and opportunities they need to succeed, both in and out of the classroom.
The Student Engineers' Council is devoted to giving back to the College of Engineering. The SEC annually gives design teams and engineering organizations $160,000 in the form of five different funds throughout the year. The money given to the teams each year is generated from the Engineering Exposition (Engineering Career Fair) held in the Fall semester.
Typically, ~150 Virginia Tech Engineering students attend.
LEC is a chance for you to network with industry leaders and learn how they accomplished their successes.
In the past years, companies that attended the LEC were the following: Kiewit Building Group, Ford Motor Company, General Electric, Microsoft, Altria, and Eastman Chemical.
