We are excited to announce that our Fall 2022 Engineering Expo will be held in person on Tuesday, September 20, with the Interview Day to follow on Wednesday, September 21. The Expo and Interview Day will be held in the UT Student Union instead of Thompson-Boling Arena. We invite employers to register today via their employer ProConnect account and join us to recruit TCE engineering students for your 2023 positions. Students will need to ensure they have a student ProConnect account to maximize their professional practice experience.
Our Engineering Expo is the premier event for recruiting engineering co-op and internship students here on UT’s campus. The Engineering Expo registration fee also includes access to the Interview Day. 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 these events which represent one of the few engineering-only co-op and internship events in the country!

The registration fee for the Engineering Expo is $475, which includes one table, two chairs, and participation in Interview Day. Please note that due to limited capacity in the ballroom, only one table per employer registration will be allowed this spring. The tables will be 6 feet wide but only 1.5 feet deep, so you may need a smaller footprint for your tabletop display. Interview Day participation includes up to two tables, two chairs, continental breakfast, and lunch. Electricity for your booth space may be added for $25.
We recognize that circumstances may change. Cancelations made prior to 10 business days before the expo will be fully refunded. Cancelations between 5-10 business days will be refunded at 50%, while no refunds are provided within 5 business days of the expo. As an alternative to a refund, credit toward a future event may be of interest and can be reviewed with the director on a case-by-case basis.
Upon arrival, visit the check-in table and be escorted to your booth area, which includes one 8 foot by 3 feet table and two chairs. For the spring expo due to space limitations in the ballroom, employers will only be allowed one table per employer registration. It is recommended that the number of attending recruiters be limited to a maximum of four attendees. If you requested power at the time of your expo registration, your employer table will be located along one of the ballroom walls to enable power to be provided to your table. Power is not available to tables located within the interior spaces of the ball room and we will be unable to accommodate a request to add power within 5 business days prior to the expo day.
