Our graduates are in high demand. 

There are many reasons why companies want to hire our students. When CECS students graduate, they receive more than just a diploma. They spend their years at UTC earning an applicable, hands-on education. They participate in innovative research and boost their knowledge with internship experiences. Small class sizes provide robust mentorships with faculty, so students reach their full potential. Strong partnerships with local and global organizations help our students succeed.
