Career Options

We believe that graduates of the PDP will enjoy an expanded set of career options as compared to those available to graduates of traditional graduate-level engineering programs.

We are committed to making every effort to assist our students in their efforts to identify and secure suitable initial professional positions and career tracks in industry.

Through industry involvement in our classrooms, special industry and company events on campus and our field project program, we anticipate that students of the PDP will have ample opportunity to meet and work with prospective employers prior to graduation. We fully expect that as the program's reputation grows, PDP graduates will enjoy an abundance of career opportunities.
