On November 5, the LSU College of Engineering collaborated with the Louisiana Engineering Society (LES) to present a professional seminar and 16th Annual Jambalaya Dinner. This event gave a record crowd of more than 200 LSU engineering students an opportunity to meet and network with about 40 professional engineers, as well as to learn about LES and what it means to be a professional engineer. 40 professionals in the engineering field hosted the seminar entitled "Engineering Your Future," and enjoyed a delicious jambalaya dinner in the courtyard of Patrick F. Taylor Hall.
