3 reasons to hire our graduates

Our graduates are:

  1. Globally competitive: The College of Engineering offers degree programs designed to make our graduates competitive with engineers around the globe. In addition to state-of-the-art curricula and research opportunities, international engineering exchange programs expose our graduates to the best engineering schools worldwide.
  2. Well-rounded: Students learn teamwork and problem-solving skills on our award-winning competition teams. During senior year capstone classes, they develop marketable products, gaining exposure to budgeting, marketing and teamwork, in addition to experiencing all aspects of engineering design considerations. A required course in Engineering Communications helps our graduates hone their ability to communicate technical concepts to multidisciplinary teams.
  3. Leaders: A recent survey by our Assessment and Program Development Committee found that two-thirds of employers surveyed rated our graduates above average in their ability to work in multi-disciplinary teams, and 71 percent reported that our graduates seek leadership opportunities and tend to quickly become project managers.
