Engineering Student Society

The Engineering Student Society (ESS) is the umbrella organization for several student branches of professional engineering societies.

Internships

There are two types of internships students can attain: internships for academic credit and non-credit internships. Internships for academic credit must be approved by faculty and are connected to an academic course. Some departments have lists of available for-credit internships and some may approve internships that you find on your own as well.

Professional Development Series

The School of Engineering’s Professional Development Series (PDS) consists of a series of events, seminars and workshops tailored to fit the needs of our students and designed to supplement their academic development. PDS provides a structured forum for students to gain the necessary knowledge, skills, and networking strategies to leverage their education into a productive career.

Life After Fairfield

The School of Engineering aims to graduate students with leading-edge engineering skills and additional competencies in oral and written communications and critical thinking who possess:

  • A well-developed cultural orientation
  • An understanding of economic values
  • A sense of ethical and social responsibility

Fairfield's engineering programs graduate liberally educated engineers equipped with knowledge and experiential skills so they may successfully enter the mainstream of industrial/manufacturing activity, education, or government service, or to continue with postgraduate studies. Our close interactions with industry enable employment of our graduates in all sectors of industry, government, and academe.

Overview

The School of Engineering maintains direct relations with area industries and manufacturers. These open lines of communication encourage the flow of information and support that keeps the engineering curriculum current and relevant to the environment in industry. These contacts are particularly useful to students in the senior project course where they tackle real-life engineering problems encountered by practicing engineers and become involved in the mainstream of engineering activity.

Engineering students at Fairfield University may join the Engineering Student Society, an umbrella organization that embraces student chapters of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, Manufacturing Engineers, the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, and the Society of Women Engineers. Students are encouraged to join ESS and profit from events sponsored by the chapters.
