Design Your Career (DYC) provides a framework for undergraduate students to navigate their career development using the same design fundamentals that they apply in their coursework. This program prepares students to take ownership of their own professional development, effectively engage with industry, and navigate the job search process. 

DYC is required for all students completing a BS in mechanical engineering who enrolled in mechanical engineering starting in fall 2018 or after. Those who enrolled prior to fall 2018 must complete the ME Buffs Pro requirement instead.

Through participating in DYC, you will:

  1. Explore career paths in both traditional and non-traditional areas of mechanical engineering.
  2. Interact with upper-division students, alumni and industry professionals during each year of the program.
  3. Take ownership for your own professional growth by seeking out opportunities unique to your interests.
