The STEM Career and Intern Fair is the premier recruiting event for STEM majors at IUPUI. In 2019 there were more than 1,300 students and 80 companies who attended. 

This collaborative event is hosted by our Purdue School of Science and our Purdue School of Engineering and Technology and is a perfect place for you to meet our top STEM talent.
