Internships & Careers
The school’s Career & Placement Office welcomes students who wish to explore future professions and conduct a successful search based on their needs and the available opportunities in the job market.
Additionally the office provides resources to link employers with LAU students and graduates in different engineering disciplines.
Our programs are contemporary and cater to trends in market needs. According to our 2018–2019 data, the school of engineering has a success employment rate of 70% a year after graduation, and 17% of go on to attend graduate school within a year of graduation.
We offer a wide range of recruitment services. For instance, we organize on-campus recruitment interviews, information sessions, and company presentations throughout the academic year with major local, national and international organizations. These events bring together students with employers.
Posting Job/Internship Announcements
The office regularly posts job and internship announcements free of charge. We maintain an email distribution list for our alumni to keep them updated on job opportunities, upcoming events, and news.
Engineering students at LAU are required to undergo an eight-week internship. The office assists students with internship positions and selects opportunities that match their professional interests and goals. The internship helps students adjust to different work environments and is extremely valuable, as students get the chance to see how the engineering theories they have studied are applied in real life, by working professionals. What is more, they get to work on projects and assignments that are important to the host company.
Recruiting Our Students
We can help you recruit students, new graduates and alumni from all our undergraduate programs: electrical engineering, computer engineering, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, industrial engineering, petroleum engineering and mechatronics engineering.
Employer and Student Testimonials
The Engineering career and placement office reaches out to graduates to follow up on their success and collect feedback. We hear from students about how the internships have helped them plan their careers before they graduate. Employers also let us know the value that LAU engineering students bring to their organizations.
Here are some of their comments.
During my stay in Germany with IAESTE, I learned a lot about the country and its culture. Beside all the fun and all the great memories I made, this experience helped me grow and mature as a person.
Ziad Bassil, Computer Engineering student
We visited plenty of sites in Los Angeles covering different civil engineering areas. It is really hard to include every event we passed through, because every minute there had its own story.
Sadek Aoun, Civil Engineering student & Lamis Saidy, Civil Engineering graduate
My internship in Karunya Institute of Technology in India was the most memorable experience I have ever had in my entire life.
Serge Francis, Mechanical Engineering graduate
IAESTE is a unique opportunity to develop your professional and leadership skills and to explore different engineering norms.
Jana Haddad, Civil Engineering Graduate, IAESTE Poland Intern 2016
I cannot but be a million times grateful for the extraordinary experience that I lived.
Marya Sadek, Computer Engineering Graduate, IAESTE Turkey Intern 2016
From my very successful experience, I would encourage any other student in the future to apply for an internship at BEMCO.
