Employers and Job Seekers
If you are hiring new employees and would like to consider a WCU grad, or if you are looking for a job yourself, you may find it useful to check in with WCU Career Services.
Please consider proposing a challenging project for student teams to work on. As you know, project-based learning is a critical part of the Kimmel School experience. Our seniors are required to work on real-world projects and to accomplish measurable outcomes. As a project sponsor, you will have a chance to mentor students, to monitor their work as potential employees and to benefit from the results of their efforts.
We welcome alumni as business partners. If you or your company is facing a tough engineering challenge, the faculty and staff at the Center for Rapid Product Realization will be glad to work with you to find innovative solutions. Our goal is to help you move your product, quickly and efficiently, along the path to commercialization.
Nominate Promising Students
If you know of prospective students who would do well at the Kimmel School, please ask them to call the Office of the Dean. We would be glad to talk with them, introduce them to faculty and offer a tour of our facilities.
Give a Gift to the School
Please consider giving a gift to the Kimmel School for a scholarship or to support an academic program. It is only through the generosity of individual alumni and companies that we can provide scholarship support for some of our best students. Without that support, many of them would never have the chance to graduate and go on to success in their chosen careers. Thank you, in advance, for your gifts.
