The department works closely with professional chemical engineering firms to promote and connect our students and graduates. It works with them to host "information sessions" which are excellent networking events as well as informative discussions about the realities of working in the industry. The department also encourages chemical engineering organizations to recruit for positions at the School. To this end, it collects and circulates Resume Books of both undergraduate and graduate student resumes. The department will even match qualified students with job opportunities. 

Be sure to explore and utilize the information the department has assembled for your benefit; this includes a standardized resume format and information for international students eligible to work.  The department also encourages all students to become familiar with the Center for Career Education, as well as the Professional Development and Leadership (PDL) program.
