We are the career office in the College of Engineering, serving undergraduate and graduate engineering students and alumni, faculty and staff, and employers.

We offer a wide range of resources, career events, and activities to help job seekers find employment opportunities, prepare job-search documents, and present themselves professionally.

We also help employers promote their brand in the College, connect with students and recent graduates, and develop links to engineering faculty and research centers.

Our staff is currently working remotely per University guidelines. Please contact us with any questions or concerns ( or 814-863-1032). We are here and ready to help.
