Professional engineers are currently in great demand around the world. Career opportunities for graduating students are excellent, and salaries for entry-level positions are currently far above many other fields.
Three types of financial aid are available for students: scholarships, loans, and part-time employment. The college and its departments annually award more than $1 million in scholarships to qualified undergraduates. To apply for engineering scholarships, students must be accepted into both UT and the college.
What can you do with an engineering degree?
Engineers play a role in the production and development of almost everything we use in our daily lives, so the answer truly is, “just about whatever you want to.”
At UT, we help you blend what you’re learning in the classroom with real-world experience through well-paid co-op, internship, and research experiences that will set you and your resume up for success.
