Employers & Recruiters

The Joint Engineering Council student organization hosts the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering Career Fair every spring and fall semester. By participating in this event, you will be able to meet our students and publicize the internships and full-time career opportunities available at your company. Proceeds from the Fair support college student activities and K-12 outreach.
