Division of Career Pathways


Fill out the form and let the UCI Division of Career Pathways (DCP) know how they can connect you to the UCI community, such as through assisting with recruitment efforts, classroom outreach, and other engagement events.


The Job Shadow Program is an unpaid student experience during spring break—hosts simply provide time and insight. Organizations can host for multiple days and employees from different functions can participate. This is a great opportunity to connect with UCI students, spread branding and awareness of your organization and introduce students to your industry and job function.

If you are interested in being a host for the Annual Job Shadow Program, please email [email protected] and we will send you an invite as the program date approaches.

Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences

ICS is among the Top 30 best computer science programs in the world and also among the most diverse computing programs in the nation — with nearly 30% female students and 50% who are first-generation college graduates or members of underrepresented minority groups.

The majority of students, particularly in the Masters professional programs where an internship is often required, participate in an internship program. At the undergraduate level, many students utilize the capstone student design program as a platform for an internship, giving employers a 10- to 20-week project cycle to vet candidates.


  • Internships, especially through the 10- to 20-week capstone projects that take place throughout the year.
  • Co-Ops: ICS is glad to partner on company-identified research project collaborations with graduate students and/or faculty based locally or at a company location.
  • Student Projects/Capstone with Employers: ICS capstone programs span eight different courses and programs, ranging from undergraduate data science to a master’s in software engineering. ICS will gladly customize projects and student groups according to your company’s specific project need(s). In many cases, capstone sponsor employers hire students as they’ve been able to observe their project management, problem-solving, and team collaboration skills over the project period. Working with a student team on a company project deliverable is often more valuable to an employer than a brief introduction at a recruitment fair or an hour interview.
  • In-Class Panel Discussions and Presentations
  • Networking Mixers
  • Career Fairs
  • Skill-Building Workshops
  • ICS Dean’s Leadership Council: Participate on an advisory board of executive-level leaders who help advance ICS research, teaching and public service goals by strengthening the school’s ties to industry and the community.

Henry Samueli School of Engineering

Over the last 5 years, the Samueli School has made significant investments into increasing its student diversity. In particular, this commitment has led to a 39% increase in the number of women and a 29% increase in the number of underrepresented minorities among its student body.


  • Internships and Full-time Recruiting
  • Senior Design/Capstone Projects: Undergraduate and graduate projects generally start in the fall quarters and last between 6-9 months.
  • Corporate Partners Program: Opportunity for strategic collaboration with the Samueli School of Engineering through projects, initiatives, and other student-centric engagements.
  • Faculty Research Collaborations
  • In-Class Presentations
  • Networking Mixers
