Why Recruit with CEE

Hiring Our Students & Alumni

CEE partners with the CMU Career & Professional Development Center (CPDC) to facilitate on-campus recruiting opportunities for employers interested in hiring our students. Please visit the CPDC Employer website to learn more about posting jobs, on-campus recruiting timelines, career fair dates, and additional opportunities to connect with students and increase your brand on our campus.

All recruiting activities are managed via CMU’s online recruiting system, Handshake. Employers are encouraged to create a free account to view student profiles and stay in the loop on upcoming events.

CEE Career Fair

CEE hosts an annual career fair, which is a great opportunity for students to meet with engineering firms looking for candidates to fill full-time positions and internships. This fair is typically held toward the start of the spring semester, in late January or early February. For more information, please visit our Annual Career Fair event page.

Other CEE Recruiting Events

There may be additional opportunities throughout the year for employers to connect specifically with students in our department. Please contact Shelby Ikeda or Valerie Quatrini to discuss existing opportunities or design your own event, which may include:

  • Hosting a recruiting event or information session within the CEE department
  • Hosting a virtual recruiting event or information session
  • Connecting with a student group
  • Sponsoring a class project
