We urge you to engage with the Earth and Environmental Engineering Department in establishing professional initiatives including recruiting and internship programs, information sessions, research seminars, and more. We look forward to building a mutually beneficial partnership with your company. Please direct any questions or opportunities to Irina Katz, our career placement officer, and she will help you recruit from our pool of talented students and alumni. 

Informational Sessions

A great way to promote your company and network with our students is to send your recruiters or engineers to campus to host a talk or a skills workshop (Recruiting 101, mock technical interviews, etc). For the broadest reach, we recommend holding these sessions in the first half of each semester – early September through mid-October for fall semester, or late January through mid-March for spring semester. Please contact Irina Katz for additional information and assistance.
