ENGINEERING CAREERS & JOB PLACEMENT
The Engineering Co-op and Placement Office can also help you secure a permanent, full-time job as you near graduation.
Did you know?
Full-time salaries are likely to be higher if you participate in a co-op than a similar-degree student who has not participated in the program. Even if you are looking for a different type of permanent, full-time experience from what the co-op provided, we can still help and provide guidance with your next steps after graduating.
93 percent of spring 2019 engineering graduates have jobs or are continuing their education.
If you never had a co-op, we can still help.
The co-op and placement office can help any undergraduate engineering student with permanent placement, regardless of whether or not you have held a co-op position as an engineering student.
“The co-op and placement office made planning for post-grad life so easy! They consistently sent out my resume to their corporate connections on my behalf. When they heard about a newly posted position at a local engineering firm, they called me right away. They are completely committed to student success.”
