It is also a way for students to network with professionals and, to a lesser extent, hand out their resumes for future co-op or job experiences. This year, Pack Jam will be held from March 9-11. The theme will be Meeting Global Challenges and will center on Sustainability, Adapting Technology, and Manufacturing.
