The College of Engineering and Applied Sciences (CEAS) Internships Program provides students with real-world experience in which they observe engineers and scientists at work, work for and with professionals in their area of interest, apply theory learned in class, learn new applications, and learn about the corporate culture and environment.
The internship experience is an important element of a student's education and makes graduates better qualified for employment. Internships may be done for academic credit and require the written approval of the student's academic advisor. Also they are full-time, paid summer work experiences. Some companies may also offer part-time internships during the fall and spring semesters. The internship experience also benefits participating employers, providing broadly educated, computer-able, highly motivated students who can perform many scientific tasks, working independently or as part of a team.
The CEAS Internships Program is administered by the College of Engineering and Applied Sciences Undergraduate Student Office, which receives participating companies' internship requirements, reviews student records and verifies academic qualifications, and forwards applications to internship employers.
