Custom Fit Industry Partnership
The College of Engineering works with companies to support recruitment, internship and research needs. With nearly 800 engineering and computer science graduates each year, our highly qualified graduates are a vital source of technical talent. Our 180 engineering faculty members in seven academic departments offer technical expertise for companies looking for collaborative research on specific problems. Whether your company is looking for engineering graduates, summer interns, or a faculty expert in a technical field, we offer a custom-fit solution.
We work with you to set up traditional or specialized internships. You provide the job descriptions and we find the students to fit your needs. Some scheduling flexibility may be needed for year-round or school-year internships.
On-campus Info Sessions
Information sessions help to introduce your company to students who may be prospective employees. Sessions may be informational, or include resume sharing and interviews. The optimal schedule for students is pizza luncheons between 11:30 and 1:30. Info sessions can be scheduled throughout the school year.
Several departments offer industry forums designed to connect students with industry employers. Seminars provide a classroom setting where you can describe your mission and career benefits.
Senior projects and clinics allow your company to interact with top undergraduates and faculty while addressing a technical problem. Industry mentors work with faculty advisors to define the scope of the project and work with a student team on the deliverables. Projects can be completed on campus or at your worksite.
The University of Utah Career Services Center hosts an Engineering and Science Job Fair in the fall and a university-wide Job Fair in the spring for a traditional recruitment experience that includes on-campus interviewing.
Industry sponsored scholarships are a time-honored way of attracting top students. We work closely with companies to facilitate the development of relationships with students for a mutually beneficial experience.
Industry Sponsored Research
Sponsored research projects are a cost-effective way for industry to explore next-generation ideas with access to equipment and faculty expertise in the College of Engineering. Research projects also connect the company sponsor to outstanding students who are working on the research. Umbrella agreements can be developed to define intellectual property rights before research begins.
Discover joint research interests with faculty experts through an on-campus research exchange.
Affiliated Labs are specialized facilities ranging from microfabrication core laboratories to analytical laser spectroscopy that are available for use by local industry. Fees help offset the costs of operation and maintenance. For a complete list of affiliated labs and scheduling information go to: www.nanofab.utah.edu/AffiliatedLabs.
The College welcomes the involvement of industry representatives on college and/or department level advisory boards. Board membership puts you in touch with faculty leadership and helps to align corporate and college strategic initiatives.
Specialty Course Development
The College of Engineering offers on-site distance education for specific educational needs. Courses or degrees can be developed to help meet your technical objectives and develop employees with the advanced skills your company needs.
