The College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky strongly encourages students to gain experience in their field, since we understand the value those opportunities bring to a student’s professional and academic development. We offer two main options: an internship and/or the Cooperative Education Program (Co-op).
Our mission is to
- assist students in developing job search skills
- build career networks that benefit both employers in their search for skilled talent, as well as students and alumni
- help students and graduates secure and succeed in rewarding careers in their chosen fields of study
The UK College of Engineering Career Development Office will assist UK Engineering and Computer Science (CS) students in finding summer, part-time, co-op or permanent employment in their field of study.
The UK Engineering Career Development staff will work with students to educate and prepare them for the application process, and to help students through the transition from academic studies to the workplace.
To maintain and expand the employer base for UK students, staff will identify and work with companies to connect students and fulfill industry recruiting needs.
