OTHER HELPFUL RESOURCES

GAIN VISIBILTY

One of the best ways to gain visibility is through student organizations. We encourage you to contact student organizations to discuss possible involvement opportunities. The Center also offers multiple programs that can help you grow your brand on campus.  Email us at careers@egr.msu.edu to discuss increasing student engagement.

PARTNERSHIP / SPONSORSHIP

The Center offers Partnership/Sponsorship and Special Engagement options for employers who are interested. Contact us directly at careers@egr.msu.edu for more details. 

INTERNSHIP FOR CREDIT

The College of Engineering offers a one credit course for students during their intern or co-op experience called EGR X (formerly EGR 393). The co-op semesters enable students to thoughtfully work out a “working lifestyle” that can include continued learning, sensitivity to professionalism and professional ethics, and a habit of thoughtfully assessing current events. You can direct students HERE for more information. 

ON CAMPUS EMPLOYER

Many students pursue internships on campus, allowing them to gain valuable professional experience through MSU’s diverse departments. MSU Departments are encouraged to post their open positions on Handshake. Sign up for an employer account and start posting today!
