Out of the classroom and into the field
Whatever your specialty and wherever you envision putting your skills to use, career preparation plays a central role in your engineering education from day one. Faculty members act as mentors and guide you on both service learning trips and field trips that enable you to see the day-to-day inner workings of top technology companies. They also help you obtain powerful internships with international companies and manufacturers, as well as independent engineering firms. During these internships, you'll showcase your expertise, independence and resourcefulness to veterans in the field — and your possible future employers.
Technical proficiency and a sense of confidence out in the field represent only one-half of your professional development in the School of Engineering. Our career development office provides practical services, such as interview preparation and resume writing workshops, while the annual career fair enables you to start networking and make potential inroads with some of the best employers in the region. These resources facilitate a seamless transition from your life as a student to your life as a practicing engineer.
