ECoS 2021:

The School of Engineering of the University of Puerto Rico Mayaguez is organizing the eighth Engineering Community Summit (ECoS) as a virtual event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. ECoS 2020-21, as always, will be a celebration of our accomplishments.

The summit will consist of STEM related seminars and workshops. The format will be similar to last years event but this year it will be just for college students.

As soon as a conference slot is reserved, the schedule on this website will be updated with the company logo. All sponsor logos will also be featured throughout this site.

As a new feature: All sponsors will have a resume book of the participants available for their recruitment efforts.
