Physics and Engineering Internships

Supplement your coursework with corporate experiences through a semester-long internship 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 can be paid or unpaid, and are often the springboard to permanent employment. Many of our graduates obtain their first job through connections made during an internship.
