Texas A&M University at Qatar hosted its eighths annual Careers for Engineers event at the Texas A&M Engineering Building 19 March. More than 50 companies and organizations participated including the University’s strategic industry partners.

As one of the main activities of the Student Engineers’ Council (SEC), the Careers for Engineers event fosters valuable connections between industry recruiters and students. Both continuing students and upcoming graduates can showcase their qualifications for internships and full-time employment opportunities.

“I am proud of the success of this year’s event,” said Dr. Todd Kent, assistant dean for academic affairs. “Thanks to our industry partners, the University hosted representatives from leading companies in Qatar and the region, which gave our students the opportunity to meet industry leaders and learn more about engineering careers in the region. The event, promoting Qatar’s young engineering professionals, is contributing to the development of the State of Qatar’s workforce, which is key to enrich the country’s human capital. Both our students and graduates showed industry leaders how they can contribute to Qatar’s future development and growth.

“The Student Engineers’ Council had great contributions to the event as it served industry participants, created a professional atmosphere, and made huge efforts to make the event a success,” he added.

Students from the University’s four engineering programs – chemical engineering, petroleum engineering, mechanical engineering and electrical and computer engineering – attended the fair and discussed their skills and applied for positions with interested industry leaders.
