The IST Office of Career Solutions & Corporate Engagement offers all IST students the ability to avail themselves of innovative career related services specific to the post-graduation transitioning of IST seniors. Our success is evident and is leading four-year undergraduate programs at University Park given:

  • College of IST graduates have enjoyed a placement rate above 80% percent for the past seven years.
  • The average undergraduate salary for the class of 2013 is $60,000.
  • College of IST graduates have been hired in many segments of the labor market including consulting, defense contracting, government agencies, manufacturing, financial services, and insurance industries, to name just a few.

Students also benefit from a strong educational and experiential background in their IST academic curriculum, which allows them to pursue advanced degrees. Undergraduate students have the opportunity to work on research with IST faculty. This experience is a great addition to their resumes and can excite an interest that leads them to pursue further education.

Strong business relationships and IST go hand in hand. The Office of Career Solutions and Corporate Engagement works hard to develop and maintain relationships with many companies with the potential to hire our graduates into both internship and full-time positions. The IST Corporate Associates are a group of companies who see great value and potential in our students.
