Robust Skillset

Real-world experiences and hands-on applications of knowledge are important skill sets. Our graduates have robust skillsets that include solidworks, experimental design, mechanical testing, technical writing, and team-based collaborations. Employers have found that the on-the-job learning aspect creates value for both the company and the student. The Career Center offers information on the ways to engage with our students.

Castner profile

“I had the amazing opportunity of doing a sales micro-internship with Cisco at their campus in Raleigh, NC. It was an extremely valuable week in which I learned the in’s and out’s of the company, as well as gained insight into what it takes to be a distinguished salesman. During this micro-internship, we were tasked with making a presentation on how Cisco’s products can help Clemson University. I was selected 1st place amongst my peers by a panel of some of their top managers, specialists, and salespersons.”
