The Office of Career Development and Corporate Relations seeks to equip and empower engineering students to discover, develop, and launch professional experiences and purposeful careers. We do so by providing customized, student-centered career coaching and resources, and cultivating industry-focused partnerships.

Career development frequently takes place outside the walls of the career development office where students interact with faculty instructors, staff advisors, work supervisors, and many others who impact their lives in meaningful ways. We hope you will partner with us as we seek to equip students to discover, develop, and launch purposeful careers.
