Many engineering employers also contact us to share full time engineering employment opportunities. These openings are posted in TopJobs, our jobs database for WKU students and alumni. TopJobs is maintained by our Career Services department. We also post job opportunities here on our engineering website as another way of notifying our engineering students of job openings.

Our employment opportunities are organized into two main categories:

  • Co-op/Internship Engineering Employment which may be part-time engineering employment during the academic year(Parallel Co-ops), Continuous Co-ops, or Summer Engineering Internships.
  • Full Time Engineering Employment- Post graduate full time engineering opportunities.
