The MIT Energy Career Fair provides an intimate environment for top caliber students with a passion for energy and companies to connect. Evolved from the Energy EXPO, which in previous years connected PhD candidates, MBA students, and undergraduates from all majors with over 20 companies, this year’s Career Fair meets the demand for hundreds of students at MIT. This year, the Fair features a diverse range of industries: clean tech, oil & gas, energy storage and management, energy consulting, etc. The event is open to all MIT and Harvard students.

1. Is this the same event as the MIT Energy Expo?

Pre-registration for students is not required; students (with valid student ID) may show up on the day of the event to register and print name tags. However, pre-registration is highly encouraged as it allows you to be included in the resume book we will be providing for our sponsors.

We will be holding an exclusive networking banquet immediately after the career fair. This dinner will be attended by a select group of employers and invited students.
11. How do I attend the post-career fair banquet?
If you receive an invitation to the banquet from a company attending the career fair, you will gain entrance to the post-event dinner.
