Internship, CO-OP, & Job Opportunities

The College of Engineering believes it is especially valuable for students to have at least one internship or co-op during their academic career.

These opportunities may involve research with faculty members and/or the chance to work in the industry in positions related to their major. This usually takes place in the summer between the sophomore and junior or the junior and senior years in their curricula. The college closely works with Career Services in linking companies with students for internship opportunities.

Keep checking for internship, co-op, and job opportunities on the "Board of Opportunities" in the WSSC, Felgar Hall 112, as well as the enclosed board on the west end of Carson Engineering Center. Additionally, internship, co-op, and job postings that become available will be posted below.
