Careers and Internships


Visit the University Career Center for all career-related resources, including information about Career Fairs, employment opportunities on campus, internships, and employers on campus.  In addition, learn how to prepare a resume and how to present yourself in a job interview. Use Job Mine, the online database for jobs, interviews, career events, and Miner Mentors, exclusively for UTEP students and members of the UTEP Alumni Association.


The internship program aims to provide students with practical experiences that enhance and complement classroom learning. Internships better prepare students for future careers by engagement in valuable experiences that put classroom theory into practice, as well as challenge students to develop professional skills and knowledge needed to ensure career prospects upon graduation within the Computer Science program.
