Careers in Engineering  &  How to recruit at UCSB

The Corporate Affiliates Program (CAP) helps students determine their future career paths. The programs we have created are called "Careers in...."  CAP has hosted "Careers in Aerospace," co-hosted "Careers in Energy/Energy Efficiency" with the Institute for Energy Efficiency, and "Careers in Education" during the first quarter. If you would like to be part of helping engineering and physical science students decide their future career paths please contact us.  

Companies can also contact us to find students for a variety of projects, internships, and jobs by having us host an "Information Session". Companies, regardless of size, are able to reach out to students through these Information Sessions by coming to campus to provide students with information about the company, as well as current and future employment opportunities.

In addition to the "Careers in...," there are also events that examine more specific career skills such as interviewing, resume writing, and even discussing upcoming technology that is emerging within various industries.

The Materials Research Lab is a Resource for Industry

Industry is cordially invited to the upcoming Materials Research Outreach Program (MROP 2013) on February 5th and 6th at UCSB's Corwin PavilionThe program will focus on research efforts concerned with the science and engineering of organic-based macromolecules and polymers as well as inorganic materials.  MROP is just one of several endeavors designed to stimulate collaborative relationships between faculty groups at UCSB and industry scientists and engineers under the auspices of our Materials Research Laboratory (MRL), a Materials Research Science and Engineering Center funded by the National Science Foundation.  

The MRL also maintains an impressive array of world-class research instrumentation in eight associated Shared Experimental Facilities, technically staffed and available for use by academic, government, and industry partners.  Their Materials Research Facilities Network Director ([email protected]) acts as an initial point of contact for queries about facilities access by external users. To read more about
