What is the GO Program?
The Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering GO Program encourages students to take an active role in preparing for their engineering careers. Now you can earn points by participating in career-preparedness activities. Cash out your points for prizes that can help you in your career!
The activities are inside and outside of the College, on and off campus
GO is available to ALL engineering students
There is no limit to the number of activities you can participate in
Who can participate in the GO Program?
The program is open to all current undergraduate and graduate engineering majors (including aviation and industrial technology) in the Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering.
Why should I participate in the GO program?
We know how busy you are with classes, work, and commute. Still, dedicating some of your time to career-preparedness events and activities will help you network and grow your community, gain awareness about the roles of engineers in society, understand what employers are looking for in new hires, build confidence in your skills and abilities, and equip you to apply and interview for jobs.
What events/activities are eligible to accumulate points?
Any opportunities, events, and activities that are part of your career preparedness are eligible to accumulate points. Please see GO Program Events/Activity Examples to find examples.
How do I submit the events and activities I attended?
Fill out the GO student activity entry form to receive points for the event or activity you attended or completed. You will be required to use your SJSU email address to complete the form. Track your points using the submission confirmations in your SJSU email account. Final points will be reviewed and verified when you submit your request to cash out points for a prize.
What proof is required for completion of activities for the program?
You can submit a “selfie” photo showing proof you attended the event or completed the activity. You can also submit a receipt, a handout from the event, confirmation of attendance email, a screenshot, or anything else that demonstrates your participation or attendance. You will be required to upload an attachment that shows you have completed the event or activity. The college will review your attached submission during the cash out period to verify the requirements are met.
When do my earned points expire?
Earned points will expire at the end of your SJSU graduation semester. That means you can acuclumate points as long as you are a student!
When can I cash out my points?
You will be eligible to cash out your points twice a year: November through December and April through May. Your student newsletter and Facebook will alert you when it is time to cash out.
How can I see how many points I’ve accumulated?
We encourage you to keep track of your entries and points. You will receive a confirmation email of your submissions that you can use to track your entries. *When you cash out for prizes, your entries will be reviewed and confirmed. The number of points you cash out will be subtracted from your total points.*
