The University of Texas, Dallas

Through our partnership with the University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) Naveen Jindal School of Management, we offer participants the opportunity to give back to a common, philanthropic cause, STEM education. Together we support a number of activities such as Scholarships, Mentorships, Job and Intern Fairs, and UTD Guest Speaking Opportunities.

Through the Technology Ball partnership, many full time jobs and internships have resulted. Some top employers included CEC Entertainment, Deloitte, Ericsson, Goldman Sachs, NTT DATA and more.

We encourage our community to please reach out if your company is looking to fill any full time or internship positions.

“To say that I’m happy with this program would be an understatement.”

What our hosts and mentees say about the program

“I came to know about various sectors of job employment. I also got an opportunity to exchange background information and career aspects. Keeping the program aside the one thing that I will always remember from this meeting is to pass on the knowledge and help others, it doesn’t matter what position you are in right now, you will always be able to help some people.” – Mentor

“It is always great to find people who take some time in their busy schedule and guide you to become a better person and choose the best career.” – Mentee
