The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Career Fair is held twice a year during both the spring and fall semesters.  Each fair is attended by approximately 40 employers looking to hire from our accomplished group of students.  An average of 400 to 450 students can be expected to attend each fair.  Employers will have the opportunity to meet with undergraduates, graduate students, and students from our Masters of Telecommunications Program, all of whom are seeking either internships or full-time employment. 

In addition to ECE students, students from other engineering departments may be invited if you indicate your preferences on our registration form. 

If you are interested in other recruiting opportunities, such as posting open positions, information sessions, campus interviews, or our Recruiters in Residence program, please contact the A. James Clark School of Engineering Career Services at (301) 405-9867 or CareerEngr@umd.edu.

The Electrical and Computer Engineering Career Fair is separate from the University of Maryland Career Fair for all engineering majors.

If you have packages that you would like to have sent ahead of time, please contact Darcy Long for shipping instructions (dlong123@umd.edu).  If you would like return shipping arranged, please bring return labels and shipping tape on the day of the event.  We are able to process return shipping for Career Fair packages.  Please allow 5 business days for packages to be processed.

Information on parking will be posted at a later date.

If you are bringing supplies the day of the Career Fair, please use Engineering Drive between the Kim Building and Clark Hall to unload for either building.  Because this is a side street, early arrival is suggested to avoid congestion.  Please plan on a maximum of 10 minutes for unloading.  We suggest having two people when unloading supplies so that one can stay with your items while the other parks the car.

IMPORTANT  - Due to the construction of the IDEA Factory, unloading in front of the Kim Building and crossing the Kim Plaza to enter the Rotunda will not be possible.

In the event of inclement weather, check http://www.umd.edu, call 301.405.7669, or tune into local radio and television stations beginning at 6:00 am to hear if the University of Maryland, College Park campus is closed or if campus opening will be delayed for a specific number of hours. If the University of Maryland is closed due to inclement weather, then all events will be canceled. We will be in touch with you via e-mail to discuss the next steps. If no information is given, you should assume the campus is open.
