Nearly 2,000 UH Cullen College of Engineering students polished up their résumés and put on their business suits to meet with recruiters from over 100 companies at the fall Engineering Career Fair held at the UH Hilton on September 22.

Janice Quiroz Perez, director of the Engineering Career Center, said many employers find it essential to attend the UH Engineering career fairs in order to maintain a pipeline of highly-qualified candidates to fill current gaps in the engineering workforce.

“Our mission at the Engineering Career Center is to provide our students with the tools they need to maximize their career development and employment opportunities,” she said. “Our career fair is a great networking event for our students to explore those opportunities with companies across all engineering disciplines.”

This year’s Platinum Sponsors included Enterprise Products, LyondellBasell, Schlumberger, Shell and Sulzer.
