Student Organizations: Students can choose from our department organizations or other College of Engineering student organizations to network and learn outside the classroom.

Co-op Experience: Engineering students can gain hands-on job experience while pursuing their degrees, and get paid for it, through the Cooperative Education Program.

Study Abroad: Engineering is a global enterprise. Many employers are looking for graduates with second languages and international exposure. Study abroad can make that happen.
