The Cockrell School's Engineering Career Assistance Center (ECAC) connects students and employers for internships, co-op programs and jobs after graduation. ECAC coordinates on-campus recruiting, including interviews, career fairs, information sessions and job postings, as well as offers individual career counseling and workshops for students, helping them to develop resumes and job searching skills.

Our students are top candidates for jobs in engineering, technology and more. We encourage employers to utilize our job posting database and take advantage of our on-campus recruiting opportunities, such as career fairs, information sessions and in-person interviewing.
