Don’t Leave College Without It
Now is the time to start working toward your career goals. Every UA Engineering student is expected to participate in at least one internship, usually done in the summer – for pay, academic credit or both – or a research experience, plus a design project. Doing internships is one of the best ways to gain professional experience, boost your resume and grad school applications, and stand out after graduation in a highly competitive job market.
An Internship for Every Student
Aerospace engineering student Maanyaa Kapur is working as an OSIRS-REx Sample Analysis Thermal Conductivity Laboratory Intern in 2022, creating methods to study asteroid samples from Bennu.
Rusty Rinehart, an electrical and computer engineering student, spent summer 2022 as a design automation and physical verification engineer at Intel. “Here, I get to apply all the fundamental skills that I learned from the University of Arizona,” he said.
Ashli Albertsen, a systems engineering major with a minor in electrical and computer engineering, interned at Climax Molybdenum in summer 2022. As a process automation intern, she learned about programming, instrumentation and optimizing machine function.
Chemical engineering student Madison Hoff interned at General Electric in summer 2020. When she wasn’t working in Tableau or Excel on a grid code database, she got to tour the on-site research center and turbine and generator manufacturing plant.
Optical sciences and engineering student Cora Davy spent summer 2022 engineering at KLA. “I'm so grateful for the opportunity to learn from professionals within my field in such a fast-growing industry as semiconductors.”
Aerospace engineering student Max Chen interned at Universal Avionics in summer 2022. As part of the Avionics System Integration team, he worked on products like the ClearVision Enhanced Flight Vision System and InSight cockpit display system.
