Career Programs

The Engineering Career Center provides employers three ways to connect with students to meet recruiting needs:

  • Co-Operative (Co-op) Education: a program that enables UH Engineering students to receive career training with pay as they work with professionals in their field of study.

  • Internships: Paid or unpaid opportunities for UH Engineering students to gain real-world experience by applying their academic lessons to professional projects in a supervised environment.

On-Campus Recruiting

The Engineering Career Center offers true flexibility in the on-campus recruiting process. A web-based scheduling system for on-campus recruiting (OCR) can be accessed through eConnection.


OCR is designed to connect employers with engineering students for co-op, internship and full-time positions.

OCR offers employers the opportunity to interview students on location through the Engineering Career Center. To get started:

  1. Contact the Engineering Career Center to schedule an On-Campus Interview schedule
  2. Submit an OCR Schedule request via eCONNECTION
  3. Post an open position through the eConnection OCR module
  4. Pre-select students you are interested in interviewing from the Applications tab
  5. Create a resume book to assist with student pre-selections for On-Campus interviews
  6. Access eConnection and report candidates you have selected for employment

Recruiting Options

  • Pre-select Schedule: Employers log-on to eConnection and post a job description and select interview date(s). Once the interview date is approved by the Engineering Career Center, employers can search student resumes and invite candidates to sign up for open interview spaces. When the pre-select period ends, the students are notified that they have been chosen for an interview, and they sign-up for an available time slot via eConnection. Important: A 6 week time period is established prior to the recruitment date for pre-selections to be finalized.

  • Information Session: Company representatives can organize information sessions through the University Center (UC). There is a minimal fee to reserve rooms. By clicking this link you will be directed to the UC for room reservations.

  • Room-Only: If you prefer to schedule your own interviews, and only need a place to conduct interviews, we can reserve an interview room for you. Please contact us to schedule a date. The employer contacts and schedules interview times directly with candidates.
