What is Industry Open House?

Hosted by the University of Texas Department of Civil, Architectural, and Environmental Engineering, the Industry Open House isn't just a career fair.

This event is an industry consortium dedicated to informing students about career opportunities within the field of civil, architectural and environmental engineering. IOH 2024 will take place in the public atrium of our state-of-the-art UT Engineering Education and Research Center, allowing professionals and students to connect in an environment that both educates and simultaneously inspires. 



What's the difference between the Industry Open House and the Engineering Expo?
Industry Open House is dedicated specifically to CAEE students and professionals specifically within the field of civil, architectural and environmental engineering, while the Expo is open to all engineering disciplines.
What's the difference between Industry Open House and a career fair?
While typical career fairs focus on job and internship openings, Industry Open House is intended to be an educational experience for our students! Engineers can also be lawyers, entrepreneurs, advisors, philanthropists...opportunities are endless and we want our students to see this first hand from industry professionals.
In addition to learning about internships and job openings, students are encouraged to ask questions about research topics, potential career paths, recommended classes for specific career paths, and more!
Who can attend the event?
The event is open to both undergraduate and graduate engineering students with an interest in civil, architectural and environmental engineering.
What should I expect when attending this event?
The format for this event is casual. Companies are assigned to a table, and students will float, looking to make a connection! 
Do I have to be registered in order to attend the event?
While we appreciate registration for an accurate count when planning, registration is not required when attending the event.
Should I bring a resume/CV?
Yes, you are encouraged to bring a resume/CV to use as a talking point.
What attire is recommended?
This event is not formal, but business casual is recommended.
I have class during this time- do I have to show up right at 1 PM?
No- you may come by anytime!
