Engineering Expo

Our Spring 2020 Engineering Expo and Interview Day, held February 19–20, was our largest and most successful yet!

Students: The Engineering Expo is open to ALL engineering majors. Students are encouraged to have an account with our office prior to attending, but this is not required. Students click here to access your account.

Employers: We invite you to register for our Spring 2020 Engineering Expo. Employers click here to access your account.

Our Engineering Expo is the premier event for recruiting engineering co-op and internship students here on the university campus. With our students, we focus on the educational aspects of the co-op and internship process and encourage them to seek positions that match their academic and career goals.

We welcome and appreciate your feedback. Thank you for your support of this event – one of the few engineering-only co-op and internship events in the country!
