Industry Relations

The Industry Relations Office is the hub within the College of Engineering for connecting employers and students. Annual survey data shows that 80-90% of our graduating engineers have experience outside the classroom prior to graduation.

Employers seeking to promote intern, co-op and entry-level engineering opportunities should post their positions on MU Career Manager and contact us for additional publicity to current students.

Students determined to gain engineering experience in industry should pursue opportunities in their field-of-interest.  Take advantage of the resources available on-campus and tap into your personal network of family and friends who are willing to help you connect with employers.
