Regular Employers

Employers that Recruit Iowa State Engineers


The goal of a large percentage of engineering students is to have one or more job offers in hand before they graduate. Therefore, when evaluating colleges to attend, one of your considerations should be the level of opportunity the school provides for you to engage with employers. At Iowa State, we make it easy for all employers to recruit Cyclone engineers, and we work to maintain strong relationships with a large base of employers that regularly come to campus recruit our students for both internships and full-time positions. Each year 400 to 500 organizations will come to campus to recruit, and many more make employment opportunities available through our online job board (CyHire). If you choose to attend ISU, you will find that the best time to make connections that will lead to your first professional position, is while you are a student.
