Full-Time Jobs

With the help of Career Services and Engineering Student Services, our alumni continue to find excellent employment offers for jobs, with many students securing their post-graduation plans long before graduation.  

To explore employers and full-time job opportunities, visit: Handshake.

Internships

Advance your career and develop professional skills prior to graduation. All of our students are expected to intern at least once before graduation, while many students will intern multiple times. Internships allow you to gain hands-on experience in your engineering discipline. You will have the opportunity to work with practicing engineers on real-world projects. Many of these positions lead to full-time job offers prior to graduation.

Visit "Start your Internship Search" for support in your search. Log into your Handshake account to search for hundreds of open internships now.

Co-Ops

Gain experience, money, and job offers, all while completing your degree. Cooperative Education experiences, or "co-ops," combine education with practical work for the ultimate student career development experience. Some industries prefer to train students more in-depth through the co-op experience, offering students more experience than their peers who just choose internships. Students on co-op work full-time for at least a semester away from campus, and may be able to arrange academic credit with their academic departments. Co-ops can also be found through your Handshake account.


ENGR 20

In order to intentionally increase your chances for a successful internship or job search, all College of Engineering students are required to take a seven-week seminar class that enables you to:
  • Learn from industry about how to stand out in your job/internship search
  • Get your resume and cover letter critiqued
  • Participate in a mock interview
  • Explore professional development opportunities on- and off-campus
