On average, 92 percent of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) graduates are employed full-time in industry or enrolled in graduate school by graduation or within a few months of graduation. Their average starting salary is $67K. We are very proud of our students’ achievements during their college careers, and we are also very proud of our graduates’ accomplishments following graduation!
They land jobs with multi-national corporations and national research labs as well as startups. They also earn admission to masters and doctoral programs at some of the nation’s finest colleges and universities. Please see the photo below for some examples of companies where our students have landed internships and co-op positions and where our recent graduates are working.
The College of Engineering and Computer Science Career Services Office provides many important resources for students. All ECS students are assigned to an ECS Career Advisor from day one who will follow the student through their four-year career to graduation. Career Advisors meet 1-on-1 with students to discuss their resume and cover letters, the application process for internships, co-ops, and jobs, making connections with alumni and employers for mentoring and networking, and preparing for career fairs and other meetings with employers.
Every semester, the College of Engineering and Computer Science hosts a specific Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair. This fair draws up to 100 employers who are looking for engineering or computer science students to fill internship, co-op, and full-time openings at their companies. Our students land co-op and internship positions at companies across the country, and they make significant wages in these positions which often pays for their housing. As interns and co-ops, our students often impress these companies with their work ethics and skill sets, leading to full-time employment opportunities with those same companies.
