How Should Students Prepare for the Job Market? Successful students have one eye on the job market as they progress toward their college graduation. They are interested and ready to participate in a variety of activities at school to help with their job search after graduation. Today’s job market is tough, and the global economy is going nowhere. However, the 2010–2011 job outlook report from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics indicated that the employment of environmental scientists, engineers, and specialists is expected to increase by more than 25% over the next decade. Job growth is likely to be strongest in private consulting firms.
The Department of Civil Engineering, at The University of Toledo, is looking for motivated students to pursue masters or doctoral degrees in civil engineering areas for Fall 2017. We encourage students who are applying to Fulbright Program for Foreign Students, Scholarships for Students from Brazil (Science without Borders program, Ciência sem Fronteiras), Full Scholarships for Students from Saudi Arabia (King Abdullah Foreign Scholarship Program, منح الملك عبد الله الخارجية برنامج), Scholarships from China, and other countries.
The Department of Civil Engineering has overall research expenditures of nearly $1 million per year from grants, contracts, and internal allocations. Qualified students will receive full tuition waivers and a stipend from the department, for at least one academic year. While we are looking for qualified students all the time, we currently have immediate openings for the coming semesters.
