My name is Navraj Sran and I am a 3rd year Mechanical Engineering student here at the University of Guelph. It is my goal to organize the Professional Development Conference in a manner that allows students to build their professional skills and have confidence in their abilities to pursue any path that they choose in the future. I hope that this event facilitates the personal growth of everyone who attends, including myself, to be the best version of themselves.

Co-Facilitator 

My name is Yousef Akkad and I am in third year Biomedical Engineering. PDC is a very important conference for us engineering students as it always is a starter-pack to industry life after grabbing that degree! It is my mission, along with the rest of the PDC team, to organize and provide a day that is filled with tips and guides to becoming successful in the real world.

My name is Chaumiya Parameswaran and I am a 3rd year student currently pursuing Biomedical Engineering at the University of Guelph. After being apart of PDC for the past two years, it's an honour to be apart of it again. This conference helps students hear various speaker's point of views, network with them as they are from different engineering fields and develop and or learn soft skills. I hope that those who attend find the conference inspiring and helpful as they work towards becoming our society's future engineers.
