Internships are an opportunity for students to attain real world experience in their discipline. Time spent in the field among seasoned professionals enables students to demonstrate their mastery of classroom theory and expand their skill set with hands-on technical experience and problem solving. This opportunity for active learning is especially important in the highly technical fields of engineering and computer science. Such experience gives our graduates a competitive edge in the job market upon graduation. Our students have interned in 49 companies across 9 states and 4 countries! Students have interned and found post-graduate employment in companies such as:
If you are a junior or senior, we encourage you to actively pursue one of the many internship opportunities available. In addition to the opportunity to apply an internship toward fulfilling technical elective credits, internships are often paid positions, helping to offset living expenses.
An internship provides opportunities to hone your skills, an experience that will inform future career decisions, and connections that will provide future networking opportunities. The benefits of industry-specific experience under the supervision of both professional and academic mentors cannot be measured!
As a Liberty University student, graduate, faculty, or alumni, you have exclusive access to the LU NETWORK, Liberty University’s employer relations database. LU NETWORK is more than a jobs board, it is a tool used only by the Liberty Community and employers specifically looking for Liberty University employees. This means that employers locally, nationally and around the world purposefully join LUNETWORK and post their positions for internships and full time positions – both for entry level and seasoned professionals.
We also encourage students to utilize LinkedIn, Facebook, Region 2000 and other resources that are available to connect with potential employers and alumni professionals.
