internships are a key component of the International Engineering
Program. IEP internships typically take place during the fourth year
of the program, and usually after a semester of study at one of our
universities. IEP Internships are six-months in
length, they are coordinated with students' engineering disciplines, and
are under the supervision of a person or team in one of the many IEP
partner companies. IEP interns are usually
provided housing by the company sponsor, and are paid a subsistence wage.
Each intern regularly writes
of his or her experience in
have over 250 internship reports online written by more than 60 IEP
students over the past three years.
Well over 300 IEP students have already completed internships with companies
in Germany, France, Spain, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, China and Liechtenstein.
It is not unusual for students to develop an ongoing relationship with
a company through the internship experience. IEP students often work
with divisions of the same company in the U.S. before and/or after the
internship, and then go to work for the company after graduation.
Though not required for domestic summer internships, many IEP students
send in a short report about their activities.
