Architectural Engineering Career Fair

AE Career Fair

The 2018 AE Career Fair will be held Tuesday, September 18, 2018. 

Registration is CLOSED.

The Department of Architectural Engineering annual career fair is the largest architectural engineering career fair in the United States, with more than 130 companies in attendance seeking students for internship, co-op and full-time positions. The participating industry professionals represent each of the four architectural engineering disciplines, construction, lighting/electrical, mechanical, and structural. The career fair connects these companies that specialize all aspects of the design and construction of buildings with the next generation of engineers. 

The career fair is designed to put companies in touch with fifth-year architectural engineering students, as well as students who are available for co-ops, summer internships, and graduate industry and research positions.

In 2016, 135 companies represented many of the largest and best known architectural engineering, consulting engineering, contractor, facilities, building product manufacturers, and construction management firms in the building industry. 

Though hosted by the architectural engineering department, the career fair is open to all engineering majors, as well as architecture students.
