AMTA 2019 Student Day will be held Tuesday, October 8, 2019 from 11 am to 7 pm at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina in downtown San Diego, California.

During AMTA’s Student Day, students will participate in presentations and discussions related to antenna measurement technology culminating in a design and measurement contest with prizes awarded to the winners. They will also have the opportunity to tour the vendor exhibit hall and view several technology demonstrations. As these vendors are typically looking to hire science and technology professionals, it is recommended that students bring several copies of a current résumé to share.
