Earn Your Aerospace Engineering Degree
While you are enrolled at Georgia Tech, we encourage you to take advantage of the career fairs, resume prep sessions, fellowships, internships, and other opportunities that Tech offers.
Career Opportunities at the AE School
AE Mentors In Residence
The Mentors in Residence initiative gives AE students the chance to choose a professional mentor and sign up for a half-hour mentoring session. During the COVID-19 tamp down, we are offering virtual mentoring sessions.
The AE School Career Fair
The AE School teams up with Sigma Gamma Tau to host its own career fair every fall and during the Spring 2022 the School held its first ever spring career fair. Companies from industry, research labs, and startups attend the fair in the hopes of finding talented students and recent graduates for various internships, co-ops, and full-time positions.
Career Opportunities at Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech All Majors Career Fair
Bring your A-game...and your resume. This campus-wide career fair will feature reps from more than 400 employers. Internships, co-ops, and full-time jobs are promoted at this event.
For many students, funded fellowships provide a great opportunity to expand their knowledge and resume within a specific area of engineering. A visit to the Georgia Tech Fellowship Office is the first step toward finding a fellowship that will add dimension to your degree and to your career aspirations.
Georgia Tech internships provide opportunities for students to gain experience in their field, determine if they have an interest in a particular career, and create a network of contacts. An internship may be either paid, unpaid or partially paid (in the form of a stipend) and can be offered during spring, summer, or fall semesters.
Co-op is the link between the classroom and the workplace. Knowledge is gained and transferred between students and employers in alternating semesters of school and work, typically with the same employer. Multiple semesters are required because real learning takes time, commitment, and patience.
