Alumni and Employer Information | College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences | The University of Vermont(title)

The contributions of our alumni and employers to the CEMS family provide an invaluable resource for our students, faculty, and staff. Scroll below to see the many ways you can connect with and support our undergraduate and graduate students.

Step 1. Join UVM Connect

UVM Connect logo

UVM Connect is our exclusive platform to create an active and expanding online community of UVM alums, students, staff, and faculty. On this platform, you can join our STEM Interest Group and connect with former classmates, talk to current students, and search for jobs on our job board!

Join UVM Connect

CEMS is always looking for ways to stay connected with our alumni. One of the best ways to ensure you're receiving information from the College and University is to go online and sign up with the UVM Alumni Association

Women in STEM Conference

Connect with the future

During the academic year, the career readiness team at CEMS hosts several opportunities for employers and alumni to connect with students including employer resume review nights, networking events, STEM-focused career fairs, and our annual Women & Non-Binary in STEM conference.

Ways you can support our students

Employer Partner Program

Check out our three (3) tiered Employer Partnership Program that will maximize your recruiting success through a robust set of options to connect with campus, build relationships, increase brand recognition, and develop a pipeline of talent that serves your workforce needs. The EPP was built to help you recruit students and alums with the skills and experiences you need.

Post Jobs or Internships

Handshake is a robust, easy-to-use platform where you can post internships, jobs, and co-ops, and can also view student profiles. 

Participate in the Engineering Co-op Program

CEMS has developed a cooperative education program offering 6-12 month Cooperative Education (Co-op) opportunities to students. Students have the opportunity to work for an employer full-time for one semester, or two.

The CEMS Career Readiness Program works closely with our Co-op students to ensure they can still progress in their degree program while pursuing full-time work experience during the academic year.

If you are interested in joining this program, contact the CEMS Career Readiness Coach.

Join CEMS Events or Host Your Own

In addition to posting your open positions with us, one of the ways to promote your organization and employment opportunities is to participate in our various programs, events, and workshops held on campus. Every year we host Employer Resume Review Nights, Networking Nights, Women & Non-Binary in STEM Conferences, and many more. Additionally, we can help you host your own informational company event or recruiting day. Please reach out to the CEMS Career Readiness Coach to get involved!

Virtual/ In-Person Career Fairs

If your company hosts internships, co-ops, or full-time positions we host general career fairs twice a year, in addition to our annual STEM-only career fair. If you're interested in recruiting on campus, please email

Tabling Tuesdays

On Tuesdays from 2:00-3:00 pm, CEMS can provide you with a table where your company or organization can share company information and opportunities with students at a location in the STEM complex.

Employer/Alumni Guest Speakers

Throughout the year, we are always seeking employers to serve as panelists inside and outside of the classroom. We also have project fairs and are always looking for judges.

Sponsor Student Projects

At CEMS, most of our seniors finish their CEMS experience with a capstone course where employers can hire students to work on a year-long project. In addition, we also have the CatCoders where our Computer Science students assist with short-term projects. Don’t have a project, consider judging at our annual  Computer Science Fair.

Submit a Senior Capstone Project

During their senior year, students in Mechanical, Electrical, Civil, and Environmental Engineering programs work in teams to address complex and multidisciplinary problems that originated as problem statements from companies, non-profits, faculty, or students. The projects are supported by the local engineering community and engineering faculty at UVM.

From a company's perspective, a capstone project offers the opportunity to work directly with senior engineering students, take a fresh look at a long-standing problem, or explore new ideas for their company.  Students are eager to engage in engineering practice as preparation for work in industry and to apply the theory they have been learning in school. Course material related to design project fundamentals and the involvement of industry contacts add to the student’s education and strengthen links between industry and Engineering at UVM.
