New Appointment Scheduling System Coming Soon!

The Engineering Career Center is currently in the process of switching from our old system ( to our new system, Handshake! Please stay tuned to your UIC email for updates to claim your Handshake account.


We will make an announcement via this page, with instructions, once Handshake is available to schedule appointments.
