Experience and Employment

Whether you choose to participate in undergraduate research, a student project team, a cooperative education program or internships in industry, professional experiences in a hands-on environment will enhance your experience, expand your résumé, and help you identify areas of interest to fine-tune your curriculum.


There are many options when it comes to getting industry experience. You could conduct research, complete an internship or join a cooperative education program, to name a few. 

To discuss which experience is the right fit for you, attend drop-in hours in the Engineering Career Center.
