Welcome Students!

The CSSE provides career preparedness, career and internship guidance to students as they move through their academic careers. All Career & Internship learning and development workshops and resources are developed and tailored to incorporate one or more NACE (National Association Colleges and Employers) competentices to help strengthen College of Engineering student's career preparedness. NACE defines career preparedness skills as egith competencies (benchmarks) to prepare students for a successful transition into the industry after graduation. 

Maximize the benefits of career readiness. Career planning is an important segment of your college years. There is a Four-Year Career Plan that begins your freshman year when you determine what career and/or major you will pursue.
