A UA Engineering education prepares you for success after college. Research, internships and design projects provide opportunities for you to put your technical skills into practice and develop professional skills such as leadership and communication – before you graduate.
Pivotal Student Engagement
All College of Engineering students are strongly encouraged to complete at least one student engagement course. Many are paid, and they typically count for course credit.
Students can also take non-traditional courses for credit. This includes internship for credit, independent study, or preceptor. A student can only use 3 units of the above listed courses as credit towards their Engineering Electives or Technical Electives. (391, 491, 393, 493, 399, or 499)
Visit the UA Engineering website for extensive information about the college’s internship program and tips for landing your dream job.
Exceptional Design Projects
The UA Engineering Design Program is crucial to your career readiness. This yearlong experience helps ensure you are ready for the workplace and opens doors to employers.
Some CHEE seniors work on teams with students from other engineering disciplines creating real-world models and products, some of which are patented and commercialized, for industry and academic clients. Others complete discipline-specific capstones, addressing a variety of design challenges.
Present your project at Design Day – arguably the most exciting college event of the year, besides graduation. Impress industry partners, see how professional engineers rate your work, and win prizes and public recognition.
24-7 Makerspace for All Engineering Students
Create your next project from scratch at the Engineering Design Center, a workspace for 3D printing, circuit building, soldering, wood and metal fabrication, and much more.
Exciting Research Opportunities
The majority of UA chemical and environmental engineering students work with esteemed faculty and dedicated graduate students on CHEE researchsuch as mineral recovery and reusable water.
