CISE Career & Internship Fair
Tuesday, February 11, 2020
11:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
JMU Festival Conference and Student Center

 

The College of Integrated Science and Engineering offers two career and internship fairs - one in September and one in February.

Our fair gives organizations an opportunity to connect with and recruit our biotech, computer science, engineering, geographic science, intelligence analysis and integrated science and technology students. 

Complementing their strong technical background, our students also focus on the human element of STEM and the context in which STEM solutions are implanted in our society and around the globe.  Our graduates stand ready to take on the challenges facing us now and in the future and they're prepared to use their STEM knowledge and toolkit wisely as they enter a variety of professions.
