WKU Engineering Employment Opportunities
On their paths to becoming successful engineering practitioners, many of our engineering students work for local, regional, and national engineering employers as summer interns or as engineering co-ops as they gain invaluable real world project and work experience.
Click here to see what our engineering students are saying about their co-op & internship work experiences.
Many engineering employers contact us to share full time engineering employment opportunities. These openings are posted in CareerLink, our jobs database for WKU students and alumni. CareerLink is maintained by our Center for Career & Professional Development(CCPD) department. We also email job opportunity notices directly to our engineering students.
Our employment opportunities are organized into two main categories:
- Co-op/Internship Engineering Employment which may be part-time engineering employment during the academic year(Parallel Co-ops), Continuous Co-ops, or Summer Engineering Internships.
- Full Time Engineering Employment- Post graduate full time engineering opportunities.

We like to keep our databases current to be able to serve your needs better. We also ask you to complete this form if you are a graduating senior who has accepted a full time offer as well!
