Industry Super Bowl

Industry Super Bowl (ISB) is an interactive career development program that engages more than 100 students and 20 industry representatives in a series of competitions during a 24-hour period. The event teaches the skills needed to get an internship or full-time position. It also offers students a great opportunity to meet recruiters from different companies and learn from them in a casual, fun setting.

Student participants are assigned to a team led by one of the participating companies, and they then compete with their team against the other company teams in a series of challenges. Company representatives also share the inside scoop on the recruiting process and "coach" students on sharpening their job searching skills. The competitive nature of ISB makes it a fun and challenging experience for everyone. Come to ISB, eat great food, meet new friends and make contacts that could lead to an engineering internship or full-time position.

Congratulations to the 2017 ISB Champions - The Dow Chemical Company!
