The University of Georgia College of Engineering, Department of Computer Science, and Career Center are collaborating to host the UGA Virtual Engineering and Computer Science Career & Internship Fair scheduled for Thursday, October 1, 2020. This event provides an opportunity to meet top UGA engineering and computer science talent eager to learn more about your company and apply for your open internships, co-ops, and/or full-time positions, and will be held online through the virtual Handshake platform. Our students major in Computer Science or one of eight engineering degree programs including Agricultural, Biochemical, Biological, Civil, Computer Systems, Electrical, Environmental, and Mechanical Engineering.

Later this summer, you’ll receive a notification from Handshake indicating that you’re able to schedule group and 1:1 student meetings for the fair. You can schedule up to five 30-minute group meetings with room for 50 students each. If you’d like to host larger group meetings during the fair, you’ll be able to enter an external video meeting link and host the meeting in the system of your choice.

The deadline to register for this fair is September 24, 2020.
