Work-ready, day one
That's our mantra — and our goal for you. When you graduate from WSU, you'll have the right mix of knowledge and experience. You'll be a step ahead of everybody else. You'll be work-ready, day one.
How WSU gets you there
Professors who are nationally recognized researchers and leaders in their fields teach your classes.
Labs and design studios where you solve real problems. Classroom learning dovetails with lab/studio courses where you put your knowledge to work on projects that need creative answers.
Actual work experience before you graduate, thanks to the University's relationship with industry partners, including Boeing, Microsoft, Hewlett Packard, Intel, Tektronix, and Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL), a worldwide leader in electrical power systems based right here in Pullman, Washington.
Opportunities to do real research. Working with faculty and graduate students on their research (and maybe even your own) amps up your creativity and curiosity — and gives you the kind of problem-solving experience that employers love.
An annual Technical Career Fair. Hosted by the College of Engineering and Architecture, this event brings in dozens of companies that are looking for qualified graduates like you.
