This meetup is for all students who have been accepted into Summer 2024 programs through the McCoy College of Business.

Visit to Continental

2-4 pm | New Braunfels

You may think of Continental as a tire company. While that is their history, the majority of company revenue no longer comes from tires. Join us for this in-person tour when we visit the Continental manufacturing facility in New Braunfels, Texas. This state-of-the-art facility, opened in 2022, produces many radar devices and sensors used in vehicles across the country. As automated driving becomes mainstream, Continental will play a main role in getting us there. There are limited spaces available for this exclusive tour, so please sign up early.
