Careers

Our students come to us from all stages of their careers, from entry-level workers who just earned an undergraduate degree to seasoned professionals with years of experience under their belts.

All of our students find their place in the Master of Engineering (MENG) degree or advanced engineering certificate program and come out of it able to perform stronger in their current position or to advance to another role at their current organization or at an another.

Several major companies trust that students enrolled in the engineering programs at UConn are going to make remarkable contributions to the most challenging projects, even before they graduate.
