Utilizing Our Students’ Talents
The Whitacre College of Engineering has a long tradition of providing students with an excellent education. In fact, the Wall Street Journal has ranked Texas Tech among the top 25 engineering schools in the nation. However, our students know that their studies are only part of the equation. With more than five thousand students attending each year, we know that you’ll be able to find the talented, driven men and women needed to make any company prosper. But don’t just take our word for it. Sign up on our Job Grid in order to search resumes; post co-ops, internships, and full-time positions; schedule interviews and information sessions; register for our semi-annual Job Fairs; review student organization proposals; and connect to the many opportunities available to you. At the Whitacre College of Engineering, we do everything in our power to connect bright students with the best employers in the world.
Apprenticeships were once the primary way to learn a trade. This practice has now fallen out of favor. While our students won’t necessarily come to live with you in order to learn their trade, the base concept is still valid: People learn best when doing. Whether you just need the help of a summer intern, an extended Cooperative Education (co–op) opportunity, or you’re ready to make the commitment of a full-time offer, we think you'll find that our students are ready and willing to make things happen for your company.
