Spring 2016 Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair

Tuesday, March 1, 2016; 1:30-6:00 pm

University of Kentucky Memorial Coliseum

Our  Engineering and Computer Science Career Fair will be the premier UK Event to connect Employers and UK Students and alumni this spring for full time positions, co-ops and internships. Due to the late date this spring, we will likely not host a separate co-op and internship fair.

Most students will be permitted to enter the fair at 2 pm, but those who complete the UK Career VIP program offered by engineering and business will be allowed to enter at 1:30. This is a great opportunity for our employer partners to meet the “go getters” and best prepared students ahead of everyone else.

Employer Registration is now live.

For more information, please contact Ilka Balk at 859-257-4178
