Hire Our Students

One of the most valuable things that St. Thomas engineering students learn is how to tackle engineering problems that do not have obvious solutions. Our senior students work in teams to engage hands-on with real-world design problems that help them gain skills in professionalism, communication and project management.

If you are looking to hire undergraduate engineering students or graduates for internships, co-ops, or employment in the fields of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer engineering or civil engineering we want to hear from you! We invite you to learn about the many services and resources offered by the St. Thomas Career Development Center and the School of Engineering.

About Our Engineering Students

Our engineering students gain a practical, values-based learning experience. It is this combination of a liberal arts and technical education that we believe produces well-rounded, innovative engineers and technological leaders who have the technical skills, passion, and courage to make a difference.

Co-op and Internship Programs

Students from any St. Thomas Engineering program (mechanical, civil, electrical and computer) may participate in industrial projects with a co-op or internship program which complements their respective academic fields of study.

The Co-op program provides students an opportunity to gain valuable work experience to train and work with a company while considering future professional choices. Students who participate in a co-op will be better prepared for real world applications of their learning and eligible to fulfill up to 4 elective credits toward their major. Students are eligible to apply for the Co-op program after they have declared their engineering major at the end of their sophomore year.

Both internships and co-ops are paid. But unlike an internship, co-ops allow students to gain college credit for their industry work experience and require the student to enroll in an elective course and pay for their college credits.
