ECS Sponsored Engineering Career Fairs

Meet co-op, summer intern, graduating professional and experienced alumni before the on-campus recruiting season! UW students and alumni in engineering, computer sciences, and physics participate in these events. They are open only to UW-Madison students and alumni.

Engineering Career Services hosts the annual Fall Engineering Career Connection. This 3-day event provides 200+ employers the opportunity to meet with engineering students in a casual environment before the students begin their formal job search.

The ECS sponsored Spring Engineering Career Connection is a 2-day event, giving employers with both immediate openings and long-term recruiting needs an excellent opportunity to meet with engineering students.

The Engineering fairs are held in the Engineering Centers lobby. Around 120 organizations fit in this space. So we host multiple days. Employers choose one date to attend the fair. Each day has a different set of employers.

Career Fair Registration Information

The registration fee is $895 for a table with 3 representatives. Each additional representative is $100. Registration fees must be paid prior to participation date or a $100 late fee is incurred. On-line payment by VISA, MASTERCARD, Discover or AMEX is encouraged.

Due to space limitations, employers attend for one day only. The event will take place in Union South from 11 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. Meal dollars will be provided for use at the Union as will a six foot table with table cloth.

For employers who find it difficult to travel to campus during the semester, limited space for on-campus interviews is available the day after fair participation. (Expo style interview space will be available - contact ECS Office.)
