Internships and Careers

Internships play an important role in an engineer’s education. Students with internship experience better position themselves for future full-time career opportunities. Internships allow students to combine career-related work experience with academic coursework to enrich their total educational experience. Through engineering internships, students:

  • gain valuable career-related experience
  • become more marketable for careers or graduate school
  • build networking relationships and contacts
  • increase the prospect of future employment with the internship company by 70%
  • earn college credit (depending on the major) while being paid

For help finding internships, contact Suzanne Sumsion in Career Services.
