College Relations

SGH's Chelsea Sprague & Gaby Simundson represented SGH at the University of Maryland Chi Epsilon Career Fair on October 23, 2015.

SGH's College Relations Program attracts students with strong academic and diverse backgrounds interested in gaining experience from a variety of project-based assignments.  We seek self-motivated students who are innovative thinkers.  SGH actively recruits at many of the top engineering schools in the United States. Our recruiting visits at top US schools allow students to talk with SGH technical staff about their experiences and provide a forum for students to share their interests with us.  We offer year-round internship and co-op programs for graduates and undergraduates at all SGH offices.
