Bull Creek Data is proud to support the IEEE Rising Stars Conference.
What: The Rising Stars Conference provides students, whether undergraduate, graduate or post graduate as well as Young Professionals with amazing opportunities to learn, network and connect with leaders in industries across the globe. With presentations from leaders in technology areas such as Aviation, Cybersecurity, Entrepreneurship, Social Media and others it culminates in a panel of the "Next Big Thing" where panelists present and discuss the future of technology and its impact on our world.
When: The Rising Stars Conference is strategically positioned just prior the the Consumer Electronics Show is Las Vegas, Nevada each year.
Who: It's not just for students, but for professionals as well as companies looking to network and hire the next generation of engineers, technologists, leaders and individual contributors. The conference has connected students with opportunities for internships resulting in full time employees with such prestigious employers as Los Alamos National Laboratories (LANL). See the video below of an attendee that took this path and has become a Scientist at LANL.
