Since 1996, Lafayette College and Lehigh University have hosted the ASCE  Student Chapters’ Career Fair for Civil Engineers.   This career fair is both informative and rewarding each year for our Civil Engineering students.  It enlightens our students in the “opportunities” available to them  for their future.

Lafayette College and Lehigh University rotate in hosting this event annually.
Currently, we have about sixty-five participating companies  in search for both undergraduate and graduate students pursuing a career in “Civil Engineering.”  Lafayette and Lehigh students are set in a comfortable atmosphere to encourage conversation between their interested prospective company and themselves. Resumes are distributed for that available opportunity and then follow-up.

Prior to the ASCE Chapters’ Career Fair, civil engineering students are provided with some background on each company.  Additionally, we provide our students with the areas of Civil and Environmental Engineering in which each company is currently hiring.  All Civil Engineering students from first year to graduate are all strongly encouraged to attend the career fair.

The 2011 Lafayette-Lehigh ASCE Chapters’ Career Fair will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2011 from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Lafayette College’s campus.

Company registration for the fair will begin in July and companies who have been recruited at the fair in the past can expect to be contacted at this time.  Other interested companies, please contact Dr. Steve Kurtz (, or (610) 330-5440 for more information.
