Internships & career engagement
Internships are an opportunity to enhance your engineering curriculum through practical, hands-on work in industry. They are a great way to learn more about engineering, gain experience, and make connections with employers to increase your chances of full-time employment post-graduation. We encourage organizations and their recruiters to abide by the standards of the Department of Labor and National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
