Consultations during the summer are done BY APPOINTMENT ONLY between the office's business hours of 9AM - 4PM. To schedule an appointment, you may do that online via your Handshake account or call us at 206-221-8423.

The CC@E is a branch of the UW Career & Internship Center to assist students in our 11 Engineering disciplines with a full suite of services. Our programming includes: coaching, exploring careers and seeking positions, guidance in establishing an experience portfolio and resume, networking opportunities, and skill development through a variety of workshops and events. The CC@E also houses the Engineering Internship Program, allowing students and employers to connect for real-world experience prior to graduation. You can read about our center's latest accomplishments in our 2017-2018 Annual Impact Report.

Whether you are a student or employer, engage early with the CC@E to be successful. Our staff has a broad background, ranging from practical engineering experience in industry to career & internship advising within the UW system.

Our staff is happy to assist you throughout your entire job search process, from career exploration to resume writing to salary negotiation. Whether you are a first-year engineering student, graduating senior or graduate student, our office can help. It's never too early (or too late!) to begin your job search.

Walk-in hours & appointments

During the academic year, the CC@E is open from 8am - 5pm every weekday. Walk-in hours (15-minute same-day session, no appointment necessary) are great to get quick feedback on resumes or cover letters, and 30-minute appointments can be scheduled to ask more detailed questions and receive help on multiple topics.

Internships & career engagement

Internships are an opportunity to enhance your engineering curriculum through practical, hands-on work in industry. They are a great way to learn more about engineering, gain experience, and make connections with employers to increase your chances of full-time employment post-graduation.
