Careers and Internships
Civil and environmental engineers are in demand nationwide, which makes it an ideal field of study. To prepare students to practice real-world engineering, a number of resources are offered, from internships to career fairs.
The annual CEE Career Fair takes place in late January with the goal of connecting students and recent graduates with employers who are interested in hiring civil and environmental engineers. The CEE Career Fair is open to all students, no registration required.
Visit The Career Center @ Engineering to receive career counseling, assistance exploring careers and seeking positions, guidance in establishing an experience portfolio and resume, networking opportunities, and skill development through a variety of workshops and events.
Real-world experience prepares students to transition from college to industry. More than 85 percent of undergraduate students pursue internships, working on high-profile projects that often result in job offers. Learn more about internships.
