Objectives

The PUPR Career and Internship Services Program was created in November of 1989. Our office guides all students as they explore and prepare for careers. Whether you are planning your career, searching for an internship or job, Career and Internship Services Program is here to help you.

We empower undergraduates, graduates’ students, and alumni to explore their life and career goals by helping them to develop core competencies and build professional networks.

Our goal is to engage students and alumni in self-discovery to craft lives that are intellectually challenging, personally enriching, and of service to the world.

Career and Internship Services Program

The Career and Internship Services Program is a program in which students combine formal academic study with periods of practical work experience in business, architecture and engineering. It offers students with defined career objectives the forum to develop expertise and sharpen skill set in their field of study. For employers, it produces an opportunity to observe prospective future employees and influence the direction of higher education.
