Student Employment in the UST Engineering Labs

Each term the department hires students as Lab Technicians and Assistants.

  • The requirements are to be an ENGR student (or close to it) with interest and aptitude in technical work to support the educational objectives of the UST engineering program. Although some positions will require advanced skills and/or knowledge, that is not necessarily what we are looking for... more critical are work ethic, eagerness to learn, and leadership potential. Working in the department is a good way to become more involved in the school of engineering, build relationships with department personnel, and it makes a good complement to your studies.

  • Most jobs will be roughly 10 hours per week, +/- 5, depending on the needs of the department and availability of the student.

  • We use the campus standard Technical and Academic pay rates as a guide in setting wages, but each case depends on a variety of factors so this is only a rough guide.

Please fill out this Schedule Form (word doc) that provides a picture of when you are available for regular duties, be sure to fill it out as accurately as possible. Bring your completed application to the appropriate lab manager - Andrew Tubesing (EE) or John Angeli (ME).
