Technology and Innovation

Hiatt engages a full ecosystem on and off-campus to support students interested in the fields of technology and innovation. At Brandeis, technology and innovation include those interested in computer science, engineering, and all types of entrepreneurial work! We collaborate with faculty in the sciences and across campus as well as student clubs, Brandeis alumni, employers, recruiters and community partners.

Industry-Focused Engagement and Events

Hiatt regularly brings together experts, employers and alumni to meet and speak with students in classes, online and in-person for exploration, preparation and networking. 

Technology and Innovation Employer Engagement at Brandeis 

Employers use a variety of programs to meet with students and identify and cultivate talent. They regularly schedule information sessions, online workshops, case competitions and site visits as options to engage with Brandeis students and alumni.

At Hiatt, we emphasize that although campus recruiting is a part of an employer’s engagement process, it should not be the primary focus when it comes to attending and participating in employer-led activities. Students should approach each event as an opportunity to engage, learn and connect with professionals in their desired fields.

Working With Hiatt

Hiatt helps Brandeisians know who they are, what they want and how to get there.

College is a time to discover yourself. You get to figure out what you enjoy, where your interests lie and goals for the future. As you find yourself weighing ideas and choices, we can help you to align them with your major or career. As the semesters change, you'll find new experiences waiting for you to take advantage of. They could be in the form of studying abroad, an internship or joining a campus club. When you know what you want, it's time to put it all together! Hiatt will support your professional goals, but we can't do all the work for you.

Your approach should be to stay curious and engaged. There's no one-size-fits-all path or plan to follow. You're unique and staying open to all possibilities while channeling your curiosity and engaging in activities will fuel your success.

College is a safe place to take risk and experiment. Try new things, get out of comfort zone, get comfortable with failing and coming back. Really stretch yourself and build meaningful experiences for yourself, even if that's against what the external world tells you.” -Athena X.’20, product manager, Microsoft
