Juniors working on projects


Opportunities to Enhance Your Degree

Student Organizations/Professional Societies

Now that you're a junior, you need to start focusing on your academic portfolio. This includes your classes and your grades, but also your campus involvement and leadership. We encourage you to join professional organizations and honor societies within Engineering. It is important to understand trends, concerns and current topics within your chosen field of study.


Juniors should consider a summer internship or co-op experience during an academic year. Practical work experience during the college years usually leads to full-time, entry level job opportunities upon graduation, and is helpful experience when applying to graduate school. Most opportunities are paid experiences.


Concentrations add a cutting-edge specialization to your engineering degree. Earned through careful selection of electives and a real-world research project, a concentration usually requires no additional coursework.


Minors complement a degree by adding the in-depth study of an additional field to a foundational engineering degree. Engineering undergraduates can minor in many fields in the college of Engineering and at other colleges at Boston University.
