SEARUC College Tour Series

The energy, telecommunications, and water industries, and their respective regulatory agencies, are fast-paced environments that impact virtually every area of life. These industries and regulators are always in need of our brightest minds. In an effort to make sure that our future workforce is aware of the opportunities in this space, SEARUC will be hosting a series of college tours. College students should walk away knowing that the needs go beyond just engineers and that there is a need for many majors and backgrounds within these regulatory bodies and companies.
