Automotive Orientation Day (AOD), Wednesday, March 6, 2024.  This event is hosted each Spring by the Automotive Technology Department. Automotive business professionals from all over the United States come to interact with automotive majors during formal sessions in the morning, and informal sessions in the afternoon.

  • The morning session consists of industry representatives participating in two panel discussions that allow students to ask questions directly to industry participants in a classroom setting. Only the first 35 companies registered will get a spot in one of the five morning panel sessions.  Deadline for first consideration in panel assignments is Friday, February 16, 2024.

  • The afternoon session consists of industry booths creating a mini career fair in our main automotive technology shop. Only the first 40 companies registered will get a table located in our main automotive shop. The remaining companies registered after the main automotive shop is full will be placed in our overflow area in the hallway leading to our automotive shops.
AOD is held in the Kansas Technology Center from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm.  Automotive Orientation Day is a great opportunity to visit with PSU automotive faculty, PSU automotive alumni, and other automotive industry recruiters.
