Government & Non-Profit

The world is moving at a rapid pace – constantly evolving technologically and becoming evermore globalized. This is why it is crucial that engineers be involved in government – to provide advised, experienced counsel on issues that are critical to the well-being and health of our nation and its future. The federal government hires all types of engineers based all over the US and overseas.

Whether engineers are researching space flight technologies, assessing the reliability of our nation’s power grid, or protecting our country from cyber attacks and security threats, a career in the government affords engineers job security and an opportunity to make a difference for the country. Similarly, nonprofit organizations are excellent places to broaden skillsets and learn how to effectively pitch ideas, all while contributing to the organization’s cause.

The Government & Non-Profit Community is designed to keep students informed about relevant industry news and connect them with related opportunities.
