Engineering Career Fair
The University of Missouri College of Engineering presents two career fairs each academic year – one in the fall and one in the spring. A career fair is often the first opportunity students have to meet potential employers.
Career Services is excited to announce that the Fall 2021 Career Fair will be returning to in-person on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at MizzouRec from Noon – 4 p.m. There will also be a virtual component on Wednesday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. Employers that register for the in-person fair are invited to participate in the virtual Engineering fair free of charge. This virtual fair will be executed entirely on Handshake.
