The Outcomes of an LMU Education are Limitless
Career paths among engineering graduates are both diverse and inspiring. The skills and tools acquired in our classrooms and laboratories — combined with personalized career resources and a loyal alumni network — create boundless opportunities for professional growth. LMU engineering graduates enter the working world with a competitive advantage – an ability to demonstrate the value of their degree both professionally and financially. Lions are in high demand among employers throughout Los Angeles and beyond, and often pursue career trajectories that result in leadership positions at their company of choice.
After graduation, civil engineers may find themselves headed straight into the field or on to graduate school. Civil engineers are master builders and will ultimately work on the infrastructure that holds our society intact, including designing roadways and bridges, creating systems to protect our environment, and so much more.
While many graduates enter the workforce immediately, others go on to graduate studies or professional schools in medicine, law and business. Graduates work for a variety of companies — from large aerospace corporations to small electronics manufacturing firms, public utilities to entertainment firms, and software development and consulting firms to small tech startups.
Students may find themselves working in a variety of fields after graduation, from aerospace and the automotive industry, to biomedical and robotics. Some students also choose to head to graduate school to dive even deeper or explore another area of engineering.
Recent alumni from LMU’s highly-ranked undergraduate engineering programs have gone on to successful careers in the public and private sectors as well as rigorous graduate work at esteemed institutions around the country. Highlighted below is a sample of some of the companies and instutions where our graduates go on to work and study.
