Gain Real-World Experience
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. This experience will give you 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 postgraduate employment in companies such as:
- Apple Computer
- Babcox & Wilcox
- Delta Star
- Dominion Power
- Georgia Pacific
- Innovative Wireless Technologies
- John Deere
- Lockheed Martin
- Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory
- National Ground Intelligence Center for the U.S. Army
- Procter & Gamble
- Red Hat
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. You’ll get the benefits of industry-specific experience under the supervision of both professional and academic mentors.
