Architectural Engineering Career & Internship Fair

The Department of Architectural Engineering's (AE) annual Career & Internship Fair is the largest architectural engineering career fair in the United States. Companies in attendance seek students for internships and full-time engineering positions. The participating industry professionals not only 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.
