Utilizing Your Talents
The Whitacre College of Engineering has a long tradition of providing students with an excellent education. In fact, the Wall Street Journal has named Texas Tech among the top 25 engineering schools in the nation. However, your studies are only part of the equation. The best thing you can do to get a leg up on other graduates in the job market is to have some experience to go with your degree. We can help you make that happen. Login to Job Grid in order to post your résumé and search for co-ops, internships, and full-time positions. Also, be sure to plan ahead for our semi-annual Job Fairs. They are the best place to showcase your talents to more than one hundred companies looking for talented graduates. At the Whitacre College of Engineering, we do everything in our power to connect bright students with the best employers in the world.
