2021 Employer Partners
The Nebraska Tech+Engineering Career Institute is a collaborative effort of the Greater Omaha Chamber, the Lincoln Partnership for Economic Development, the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, and the following outstanding employer partners.
The Institute runs from August 13-19 (the week prior to classes beginning), with an early move in on August 13 or 14. NTECI may also meet for a couple of events during the fall term.
Move-In Continues, Get Settled, & OPTIONAL Events Due to the Garth Brooks concert occuring on-campus this day, we will not be hosting official NTECI events as navigating campus may be difficult and room reservations are not allowed. Abel Dining Hall will be open for meals.
If you didn't move in the 13th, move-in the morning of the 14th
If you're already moved in, sleep in and get settled, check out campus
OPTIONAL: Student and Peer Coach Lunch in Abel, Board Games & Hanging Out
OPTIONAL: Connect with your early move-in peers in the afternoon via GroupMe to explore campus
