Physics and Engineering Internships

Internships are semester-long paid or unpaid corporate experiences in physics or engineering.

In your internship, you will apply the skills and knowledge you have learned in your courses to real business situations, expand your learning through work experience, and build professional networks. Internships are often the springboard to permanent employment and many of our graduates obtain their first job through connections made during an internship.
