There will be food and representatives from General Motors for student employment opportunities. They are looking specifically to hire Computer Science students in the area of vehicle controls and Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS).

The automotive industry is changing and is important for Ontario. It also is an industry known to have a large gender gap in its workforce. It is also a lot more than just engineering-its marketing, economics, environment and more. Lets come together and talk about the importance of the automotive industry in Ontario, the changing technology in the field, and how we can address the gender gap to ensure a diverse and creative workforce. 

You can also check out all the automotive student teams on campus and see the 2016 Camaro that will be turned into a Hybrid.
