For Alumni

We love to stay connected with our alumni through various alumni events and programs. We also offer the opportunity to engage with our students, from internships to full-time opportunities as well as mentoring students, providing insights, and advice for career development. There are plenty of ways to stay involved with Columbia Engineering.

Get Connected

Columbia Engineering Career Connect (powered by VMock) is the ideal platform to connect and engage with current Columbia engineers. Within the platform, you can post positions, organize both in-person or virtual events, search for profiles of students who meet specific criteria, batch export resumes, and more. Sign up for an employer account, or contact our team to get started!

Hire Columbia Engineers

Interested in hiring our engineers and scientists? The best way to recruit our students is to post a position on Columbia Engineering Career Connect. You're also welcome to contact our Graduate Career Placement team to discuss your specific hiring needs. If you want to hire from a specific program, you can contact that program's dedicated placement officer.

Get Involved

One of the most effective ways to engage our students is to meet them. We have many different avenues, including alumni chats, information sessions, career fairs, office hours, industry round tables and showcases, panels, and on-campus interviews. We have also facilitated office visits (virtual and physical), and career talks. Please contact our team for details.

The Professional Development and Leadership (PDL) program’s goal is to enhance the Columbia Engineering education by providing enrichment and development opportunities. The PDL program takes a number of forms at Columbia Engineering including sessions featuring leading industry professionals. For more information, contact us.

Real-world, hands-on experience is valuable to our students. Many of our programs feature courses to specifically allow students to immediately engage with industry clients to solve their business and operational challenges. Students select projects to gain industry experience while taking courses. Contact Dr. Jenny Mak at [email protected] to get started.
