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.
Use all your resources to find an opportunity with a great employer!
Many of the companies that conduct on-campus interviews are seeking to fill internships and co-op positions, in addition to full-time roles.
The College of Engineering (CoE) International Internship Program connects Michigan engineering and computer science undergraduates with meaningful, technical internship opportunities abroad.
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.
