Summer Internships provide students with an opportunity to learn about the engineering profession from observation and participation during the spring/summer semester.

Students can apply for internships as early as the summer following the first year; internships generally run from May through August although there are a few exceptions.

What is the difference between a co-op and a summer internship?

Co-op is an eight month period work, May through December or January through August or a fall term and spring/summer. An internship is May through August, you are not registered, do not receive credit and it will not appear on your transcript. We recommend that you try and obtain a summer internship or co-op before you graduate.
