Careers & Networking
The WEP Career Connections give students an opportunity to gain engineering experience and network with engineers and recruiters in industry. Through undergraduate research (GLUE), undergraduate seminars (WEP Career Connections Seminar and WEP Leadership Seminar) and the annual WEP Evening with Industry Banquet, students gain the career connections needed to make informed career choices and the networks needed to achieve career goals.
The EXPO 101 Workshop is hosted jointly by the Equal Opportunity in Engineering (EOE) Program and the Women in Engineering Program (WEP) to prepare students for the Cockrell School’s Engineering fall EXPO (Career Fair). EXPO 101 provides students with the basics about EXPO – what to wear, what to take, how to prepare, how to behave at a career fair, etc.
Evening with Industry Meet and Greet
The annual WEP Evening with Industry Meet and Greet is a networking event hosted by the Women in Engineering Program prior to the Fall Engineering EXPO. More than 20 companies and 100 students from WEP's WISE program and other student leader programs are expected to attend each year.
Consider Every Option (CEO)
Consider Every Option (CEO) is open to engineering students who wish to explore the many career paths you can take with your engineering degree, including some non-traditional choices.
Evening with Industry Banquet
The annual WEP Evening with Industry Banquet is a networking event hosted by the Women in Engineering Program. More than 40 companies and 425 students, faculty and industry representatives are expected to attend each year.
Graduates Linked with Undergraduates in Engineering (GLUE)
The Graduates Linked with Undergraduates in Engineering (GLUE) program gives undergraduate students the opportunity to gain introductory, practical research experience through working with a graduate student mentor.
Participation is limited to 24 undergraduates, and open to all degree seeking engineering majors who have never done research, who are in good academic standing. Undergraduate participants gain valuable research/work experience by:
- assisting their graduate mentor with research projects for 3-5 hours per week during the semester
- participating in a weekly seminar class (Tuesdays, 3:30 - 5 p.m.)
WEP is partnering with the e-mentoring network for diversity in engineering and science to give students an opportunity to network with great mentors from all around the country.
