Session 3: Educating and Providing Career Services to Engineering Talent

November 19, 2014 04:45 PM – 06:00 PM

Framing Questions:

  • Where are engineering graduates finding jobs? What industries/companies and other employers recruit from your institution?
  • How, if at all, have the occupational opportunities and choices of engineering graduates changed over the past decade? How well aligned are these opportunities aligned with the expectations of students and parents?
  • What career identification/placement and related services are institutions of higher education and others provide engineering students and how have these services evolved in recent years?
  • What impact, if any, have changing occupational opportunities and choices for engineering graduates had on the undergraduate engineering education experience—curricular and extra-curricular?
