It’s a great time to be graduating with a degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering, as opportunities abound. Employment for engineers is expected to grow by 22% now through 2018, according to the U.S. National Bureau of Labor Statistics. That’s far above the average for most other occupations. In fact, U.S. News & World Report lists several engineering related jobs as among the “100 Best Jobs of 2013” as it is one of the most persuasive forces in society. Society is dependent on individuals who create, power and support our electronics and information systems. Engineering is expected to be one of the fastest growing fields between 2014 and 2022.
We work to cultivate contacts between our students and industry, with the goal of placing our graduates into challenging and fulfilling positions where they can utilize their excellent academic background to further today’s as well as tomorrow’s business objectives.
As the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering we focus primarily on development, management, and research positions in Electrical and Computer Engineering. However, we also maintain close contact with related programs, departments, and institutes on campus, including the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.
In addition, we cooperate with the Johns Hopkins Career Center for campus-wide job postings, resume drops, as well as in arranging campus visits. We also work closely with the Johns Hopkins APL (Applied Physics Laboratory) who are dedicated to solving complex problems that present critical challenges in society.
Our goal is to help students shape their careers in myriad ways. For instance, we provide them with announcements of various opportunities to further education and careers, from jobs and internships, to scholarships and volunteer opportunities. However, note that in order to receive these notices, you must subscribe to the appropriate student mailing list in the department. The Career Center is another source for important announcements. If you want to benefit from their services, you also need to create an account with them and set up email notifications for career opportunities that are of interest to you.
We also seek to provide you with career advice in various forms. You should obviously use the resources provided by the Career Center, but if you want more focused advice—specifically for computer science—we’re here for you as well.
