Why is the Engineering Expo a virtual career fair this year?

In light of COVID-19 and the need to reduce population density and maintain physical distancing, all fall semester engineering recruiting events will be held virtually. The health and well-being of our students, employers, staff, faculty, and the university community continues to be our top priority.

We are excited to partner with Handshake to run the Engineering Expo in a virtual format. The Virtual Engineering Expo will allow students and employers to engage through:

  • Video, audio, and chat communication

  • Group sessions

  • 1:1 student meetings scheduled in advance or after a group session

  • Sharing company values and documentation with students ahead of time 

The 2020 Engineering Expo Coordinators and Engineering Career Services are committed to connecting students with employers recruiting for co-op, internship and full-time career opportunities in a safe virtual environment. We hope you will enjoy the first ever Virtual Engineering Expo!

Thank you to our Event Sponsors!
