AE Career Fair

The 2021 AE Career Fair will be held on Tuesday, September 14, 2021, in person at the Bryce Jordan Center on the University Park campus.

The Department of Architectural Engineering's annual Career Fair is the largest architectural engineering career fair in the United States. Companies in attendance are typically seeking students for internships, co-ops, and full-time entry-level engineering positions. The participating industry professionals represent each of the four architectural engineering disciplines of construction, lighting/electrical, mechanical, and structural but also include some of the more non-traditional career opportunities such as facilities management, real estate development, equipment and product manufacturing, and scientific research. The Career Fair connects companies that specialize in all aspects of the design and construction of buildings with the next generation of engineers.

The AE Career Fair is designed to put companies in touch with fifth-year architectural engineering students; however, the Career Fair is open to all engineering majors, as well as architecture students who are interested in the scientific and engineering aspects of buildings.
