Career Development

In the School of Engineering, members of the Office of Career Development work with students to plan the academic and professional components of each student’s education. They explore career interests, guide students through a career development process and provide assistance with internships, resume preparation and employment interviews.

Internship Program

School of Engineering students gain valuable career experience by participating in a professional experience. The professional experience may be either an internship, typically paid, or a research project.  

Mission Statement

Educate and inspire students in a high-quality engineering learning community that facilitates their transformation into professionals, leaders, citizens and lifelong learners.
