In an abundance of caution resulting from the risk of Coronavirus and the fact that many companies now have travel restrictions, the Automotive Orientation Day event scheduled for Wednesday, March 18th has been CANCELLED.


Automotive Orientation Day (AOD) is hosted each Spring by the Automotive Technology Department. Automotive business men and women 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 panel discussions that allow students to ask questions and receive answers. The afternoon session consists of industry booths creating a mini career fair.  AOD is held in the Kansas Technology Center from 8:00am to 2:30pm. Automotive Orientation Day will be held Wednesday, March 18, 2020.

The AOD Appreciation Reception & Dinner will be held the Tuesday evening before AOD. This is a great opportunity to visit with PSU automotive faculty, PSU automotive alumni, and other automotive Industry recruiters before Automotive Orientation Day. Please indicate on your registration if you will be attending the Tuesday evening reception and dinner while registering for AOD.  The dinner will be held at 7pm in the Kansas Crossing Casino (1275 South US 69, Pittsburg KS), in "the Corral" event center.
