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.

What Former Students Say

  • "When I graduated with three different internships, I still didn't know what I wanted to do, but I had a great foundation of what I didn't want to do, and that was a lot more valuable than I thought." — Gina Valerio, '16 Eng (ME)

  • "Being a Career Envoy was a very rewarding experience. By assisting students with their résumés and interviews, I was not only able to help them secure internships but also able to strengthen my interviewing skills. I was also able to help fellow international students navigate through the different recruitment processes. The entire experience has been instrumental in my role as a mentor at educational non-profits as well." — Akshay Sanwal, '17 Eng (IE)
