If there is any question about the program in regard to Full-Time, Summer and Co-Op workers, or research development and consulting, the Key Professor should be contacted. The Key Professor at each school can provide you with their requirements.
Director of Placement
The individual who has the major responsibility for student employment opportunities is identified as such. This person will arrange appointments and assist in scheduling recruiting visits to the campus.
Advisory Committee
The Industrial Advisory Committee is crucial at every FEF school.
