Civil Engineering Career Fair

This fair is specifically for the civil engineering and construction industries and is held each fall and spring semester. The event is a great opportunity for employers to meet students looking for co-op or graduating students looking for full-time positions.

Although the event is targeted toward civil engineering technology students, it will be open to students in other majors who have a specific interest in the construction field. These majors include mechanical engineering technology; electrical engineering technology; architecture; and environmental sustainability, health and safety.
