Internships

We encourage our mechanical engineering students at all levels to take advantage of the many internship opportunities available in the public and private sectors, within and beyond the State of Idaho.  In addition to gaining valuable engineering experience, you may use your internship experience as a technical or mechanical engineering elective in our curriculum.

Current Opportunities

 

What is an internship?

  • An arrangement between an organization and a student where service is exchanged for substantive experience.
  • A good way for an individual to sample various industries, gain exposure to a variety of processes, work in a professional environment, and create professional networks.
  • Interns gain exposure to many aspects of an industry they had not previously considered, creating more options for them in their career planning.
  • Positions may be paid or unpaid and are generally of a fixed term.
  • While not a given, many interns find employment with the companies where they intern due to the experience they gain.
