Navigating the career development and job sectors as a student can be overwhelming and difficult. The School of Chemical, Biological, and Environmental Engineering (CBEE) offers resources through our undergraduate advisors, industry relations coordinator, and the OSU Career Development Center to assist you in learning about this process. We highly recommend looking into undergraduate research and internships in industry as a way to improve your engineering skills for your future career!
Doing undergraduate research is a great way to start building your resume early in your time at OSU. Having research experience can also help you be more qualified for highly-competitive industry internships, and it is also great preparation for students interested in graduate school.
Not sure about your career after graduation? Consider going on one of CBEE’s industry tours or participating in a job shadow! These programs are a great way to learn about the different kinds of industries related to your major and what kinds of jobs exist in those industries.
Doing an internship in industry is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for getting a job after graduation. Internships are an essential way to develop skills that will make you a desirable candidate for jobs after graduation. The practical experience gained through internships will make you a better and more marketable engineer.
