    2nd Annual Michigan Tech Rail Day and Railroad Night XI
    The Rail Day and Expo is an awesome opportunity for both students and industry! Railroad companies and consultants have the opportunity to showcase the industry and the career opportunities available.  This is also a targeted recruiting opportunity for the industry ... students who attend already have some interest in railroading.  For students, this is an opportunity to have focused discussions about the rail industry and what it has to offer. Railroad Night is a networking opportunity for both industry representatives and students. The event features a relaxed evening of dining and conversation; a keynote speaker provides a personal touch and insight into the rail industry. Location : Michigan Technological University, 1400 Townsend Dr., Houghton, Mich. 49931
