Industry Relations

Industry Relations

Parks College maintains a strong relationship with engineering and aviation industries.

Student Opportunities

From internship and co-op opportunities for students, to helping the industry with continuing education, to research collaboration, the college focuses on building industry relations. The college not only wants to work with connections in the surrounding St. Louis area, but also wants to work with industry worldwide to strengthen its programs.

Students are always looking for an internship or career opportunity within the industry, and they are well-prepared for well-respected positions with our robust aviation and engineering degree programs. Their hands-on experience in a learner-centric environment prepares them for all that the industry entails, and they are ready to learn more when they arrive on the job.

Industry Collaboration 

Parks College builds their collaborations and relationships with companies around the world to enhance their industry network. Faculty work on grants with industry organizations, alumni connect with the college and continuing education is growing, with recent courses in civil engineering offered.

An example of strong industry support is in the civil engineering department launch. The industry and executive advisory boards of the college, alumni and organizations in the St. Louis area were instrumental in setting the foundation for the program. The college received generous funding by the launch of the program, and had a large turnout at the inauguration. The first class of civil engineers at Saint Louis University’s Parks College graduated in 2013 and the department received ABET accreditation in 2014.

Use your aviation or engineering degree to its fullest potential. Engage with industry before you graduate and engage with Parks College post-graduation day; it’s worth it. Read these success stories to see what other students have done.

Continuing Education

Civil Engineering

Civil Engineering Continuing Education courses are now being presented by Saint Louis University. These courses and seminars are intended to serve those working in the field or currently studying the discipline. They provide localized, high-quality, in-depth instruction, bringing together industry leaders for professional development and analysis of current issues. Both Missouri and Illinois call for thirty hours of development activity every two years for P.E. recertification.

To assist area engineers in fulfilling that requirement, all eligible attendees will be granted Credits (CEUs) or Professional Development Hours (PDHs) upon completion of each course.  Please check back for additional updates and course offerings.

For more information about Continuing Education at Parks College you can contact us at or (314) 977-8203. Custom designed courses that meet specific business’ needs may be taken under consideration upon request.  As the Civil Engineering Continuing Education Offerings further develop Parks will begin to offer course in other disciplines as well.
