Engineering Careers for Students
Student Involvement and Professional Development
Established in 2015 by Dr. Robert H. Bishop, Dean of Engineering, the USF Engineering Council is the governing body for all engineering clubs formed to promote interest in various engineering areas. Some benefits you can get from this resource include connecting with industry, conferences, professional and social networks, inquiries about engineering organizations, and professional development. For more information about student organizations, visit: https://www.usf.edu/engineering/undergraduate/e-council.asp or Bullsconnect: https://bullsconnect.usf.edu/home_login.
Connecting with Industry
Employers schedule information sessions within the College of Engineering to talk about their company and engage in possible recruitment for internships, co-ops or full-time positions. The sessions are typically held throughout the academic year at 5:30pm in CUTR 102. Additionally, employers can set up a table in the Hall of flags or ENB building to meet and greet individual students, discuss interest in working for the company, and usually accept resumes for positions. All information sessions are promoted through the Engineering Undergraduate and Graduate Canvas pages.
Furthermore, student organizations offer information sessions as well, usually before national and regional conferences - for more information, visit their Bulls Connect profiles.
USF Career Fairs
USF Careers offers two different career fairs per semester: one for technical professions and a second for non-technical professions. Details for both events can be found here: https://www.usf.edu/career-services/events/career-fairs.aspx
Handshake is the online career management system for students at the University of South Florida. In addition to being the place where you can search and apply for internships, co-ops, and both part-time and full-time jobs, you can also use Handshake to:
- Upload a resume and complete your online career profile
- Allow your online career profile and resume to be viewable by employers
- Keep track of your appointments with Career Services in one location
- Learn which employers are attending upcoming Career & Internship Fairs
- View upcoming local and on-campus career events
- Research contact information for local and national employers
- Search for and apply to open positions
This platform allows you to research companies’ profiles to find out more about them, potential opportunities and/or professional development programs. Additionally, LinkedIn may suggest USF alumni who are associated with your company of interest and may be a potential resource on your job search. We strongly recommend our students to follow USF College of Engineering on Linkedin.
