About the Fair
We are the largest career fair at the University of Michigan, but our origins are humble. We started in 1985 as a collaboration between Tau Beta Pi (TBP), the National Engineering Honor Society, and the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). We had only 19 companies attend that first year.
Since then, we have grown to become one of the largest student-run engineering career fairs in the nation with nearly 350 companies in attendance. We are the premier Career Fair held in the fall at the University of Michigan College of Engineering and are proud to continue our 37-year tradition by connecting talented U-M engineering students with top employers from around the world.
The Society of Women Engineers at the University of Michigan provides its members with the ideal engineering and college experience. Every year, in addition to running Career Fair, the section engages hundreds of K-12 students across the globe in engineering outreach activities, hosts several charity events (including a 5K Fun Run, and the Engineering Games Competition), competes in the Boeing Team Tech Competition at the SWE national conference, and organizes several networking and professional development events.
Tau Beta Pi (TBP) is the only engineering honor society representing the entire engineering profession. Michigan Gamma is the chapter at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor. It was established in 1906 and has since grown to be the second largest TBP chapter nationally, initiating more than 12,000 lifelong members. In addition to being one of the largest chapters, Michigan Gamma is by far the most active in the nation. The chapter runs Cub Scouts Day and Merit Badge Day every semester, hosts the College of Engineering Leaders and Honors Awards every winter, organizes free one-on-one tutoring, and leads a number of socials and intersociety activities.
