Career Development

SEAS Office of Experiential and Career Development

Students in Harvard’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences now have a career office within SEAS itself.  Whether you are early in your undergraduate studies or are rushing toward your PhD defense, we may be able to help you.  Send an email, call, or stop by my office in Pierce.  (See information on the right-hand side of this page.)  I suggest that you send me a resume, the url to your LinkedIn profile, and, if you have one, a link to a project portfolio. 

I have no specified office hours, but I am in my office much of that time from before 9 until about 5.  If you see that my office door is open, stop by.  A more certain way to see me is to set up an appointment. 

We also encourage students to make use of the opportunities, advising, and resources available through the university Office of Career Services (OCS) including summer funding, research opportunities, and study abroad.  See their contact information on right-hand side of this page.

If you are from industry and wish to recruit our students, please see our Industry page.

Student Activities

If you are interested in student clubs that have strong participation from SEAS students, see the Student Organizations page

If you are interested in participating in student competitions (e.g., robotics, computing, etc.), see the Student Competitions page.  Many of these are tackled by teams organized through the Student Organizations.

Undergraduate Research Opportunities in Harvard Groups

These opportunities - at least initially - do not include financial support during the school year.  You may be able to get course credit - check with the professor and your advisor.  See this link for a running list of these opportunities by posting date.  We are not always informed when the opportunities disappear, so check frequently. 

Job Postings

We strongly encourage employers to post jobs on Crimson Careers.  So, please check that site regularly.  We have some supplemental postings here that don't quite fit into CC and some that may be duplicates.  We also include internship opportunities in university and government labs.

SEAS Undergraduate Newsletters

We post selected internships, post-graduate jobs, part-time jobs, and company / student club events in the weekly undergraduate newsletters.  (Clicking on that link will take you to a page which has copies of the newsletters.)
