First Year Gear-Up

An exclusive event for first year engineering students
Friday, December 4, 2015, 2:15 pm to 7:30 pm

Engineering Career Services (ECS) and Kappa Theta Epsilon (KTE), the national internship/co-op honorary, are hosting the Second Annual First Year Gear-Up on December 4th. This half-day conference-style event is FREE and caters to the needs of first year students as they begin searching for their first intern and co-op. Students will take part in alternating sessions presented by ECS staff that cover resume advice, interview strategies, and tips for a successful co-op and internship search. A panel of experienced upperclassmen will also provide valuable insight into obtaining an internship/co-op. Attending the First Year Gear-Up fulfills ECS registration requirements—and students will be registered 4 months early!


The Gear-Up is sponsored by GE Aviation and GE representatives will be in attendance to offer their professional industry perspective.


Email invitations will go out to qualifying students on November 4th and all applications are due November 16th.

Spaces are limited, so interested students are encouraged to apply early.
