Engineering Career Assistance Center

Welcome to the Engineering Career Assistance Center (ECAC) at The University of Texas at Austin, where students and employers connect. ECAC coordinates on-campus recruiting, including interviews, career fairs, information sessions and job postings. Students learn lifelong job search skills, and employers hire top engineering candidates. We look forward to helping you connect.

Students are encouraged to get involved in job search and on-campus recruiting by creating a resume, interviewing on campus and attending information sessions and career fairs. Students are also able to develop job search skills through individual counseling, workshops, the ECAC library, and a variety of job search articles.

Employers can connect with students using a number of recruiting tools, including job postings, on-campus interviewing, information sessions and career fairs. Our recruiting team is here to help you get started.
