Industry Networking Event

Our main objective is to encourage and facilitate contact between graduate students finishing their PhD programs and industry members looking for PhD graduate positions. Job opportunities in the field of acoustics are varied but are often unknown to students. This event is an opportunity to fill this gap.

This event will take place on Monday, October 22nd from 7pm to 10pm at the Nunobiki/Kitano Room (Portopia Hotel, Kobe, Japan). It will have two parts:

Module 1

7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Speed Networking
  • 30 students present their profile to industry members of their field.
  • Two-minute rounds of one-on-one meetings.
Module 2

8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

Social Reception
  • Casual networking between students and industry members.
  • No meeting timeslots.
  • Food and drinks included.
