Each year, the Cullen College hosts two Engineering Career Fairs to connect engineering students with regional and national employers offering positions for co-ops, internships and full-time jobs in a wide range of industries.

This year, more than 1,500 Cullen College students met with recruiters from over 80 companies at the spring career fair held on Feb. 11.

“There’s no better place for companies to identify their future leaders,” said Janice Quiroz Perez, director of the Cullen College’s Engineering Career Center.

As the fair wrapped up, surveys were distributed to employers and recruiters who attended the event. Quiroz Perez said the response was extremely positive, with many employers commenting on the outstanding level of preparedness and professionalism exhibited by UH Engineering students.
