The Department encourages all students to engage in professional development activities. These initiatives are largely sponsored and offered by the Electrical Engineering Department and/or the Columbia University Center for Career Education.
- Center for Career Education
- Electrical Engineering Resume Portfolios
- Internship for Academic Credit
The Center for Career Education (CCE) serves the students of a number of Columbia University schools, including the Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Science. The Electrical and Computer Engineering Departments partner with CCE to deliver meaningful career development programs and recruiting initiatives. All students should register with the CCE immediately upon arrival at their website.
The Electrical Engineering Department compiles resume portfolios of each graduate program to distribute to over 200 registered employers. Many students have obtained full and part time employment through this initiative.
