Military members and public citizens are cordially invited to attend The Society of American Military Engineers (SAME) 2016 professional engineering symposium, which will be held Nov. 4, 7 and 8 at AEON mall in Kitanakagusuku.

The topics will span all engineering fields and provide attendees with networks and connections throughout the engineering community.
