BYU Engineering graduates are attractive to potential recruiters because they have excellent technical preparation, good communication skills, and high ethical standards. And our graduates are hired to do an impressive variety of jobs, but first and foremost our graduates are hired because they know how to solve problems - problems of whatever flavor they may face - technical, business, organizational, or interpersonal.
