Make the Future – Industry Insights, a new web series featuring engineering alumni

The Faculty of Engineering at uOttawa presents Make the Future Industry Insights, a new web series hosted by Zoya Abou-Jaish, a fourth year Electrical Engineering student. While respecting social distancing, Zoya virtually met with faculty alumni to get a better idea of what’s going on in their industry. She also took this opportunity to ask them questions about their career path since graduation.

Thanks to their knowledge and experience, alumni offer precious advice to students and young alumni as part of this web series. They reflect about what they could have done differently if they could go back in time. In conclusion, there are certainly some lessons to be learned from past economic crises.

In this episode of the Make the Future Industry Insights web series, Zoya Abou-Jaish, an Electrical Engineering student, meets Aali Alizadeh, Co-Founder, President & CTO at Giatec.
