Each year the College of Engineering hosts engineering specific career fairs to cultivate relationships between engineering students and employers. This is a great way for students to meet 100+ engineering, manufacturing, consulting and governmental organizations to discuss full-time, co-op and internship opportunities in the areas of Biomedical, Chemical, Civil & Environmental, Electrical & Computer, Industrial & Systems, and Mechanical Engineering, and Computer Science.

  • All fairs, whether being held in-person or virtually, are coordinated through Handshake where students can view attending employers and register in advance.


The fairs officially kick off the start of our fall and spring on-campus recruiting seasons. With 100+ companies and 800-1400 students attending each fair, regular presence on campus is essential to build and maintain your company’s brand recognition and recruit top engineering talent.

  • View and register for all University of Iowa Career Fairs through Handshake

It is vitally important to build your pipeline now and begin cultivating relationships with underclassmen as they begin exploring careers and companies.
