Events & Calendar

Career Fairs

The Cockrell School holds engineering career fairs each academic year. These events offer excellent opportunities for students to meet with potential employers.

Fall Expo, a student-run career fair hosted by the Student Engineering Council (SEC), takes place in late September and is considered the first official event of the fall recruiting season.

Spring Expo, hosted by the Engineering Career Assistance Center, takes place in late January/early February. Like Fall Expo in September, Spring Expo is an opportunity for students and employers to speak informally about available positions.
