Off-Campus Internships and Jobs

  • BYU STEM Fairs:  Watch ME Bulletins for details on semi-annual STEM recruiting fairs, used by many, many employers to fill jobs and internships.  Registration on Handshake is critical, since many recruiters set up information sessions, interviews, and other STEM recruiting events through Handshake.

  • ME Internships/Jobs page. The ME Department sometimes receives notifications about open jobs and/or internship opportunities from off campus entities.  They are often posted on this page.
