Internships

Internships

Apply what you have learned in the classroom to practical work experiences! The primary focus of an internship is EDUCATIONAL in nature.
We recommend you report every internship experience in CometCareers.

We use the term “internship” to include cooperative education (co-ops), internships, and Curricular Practical Training (CPT).

If you are ready to begin your internship search, please review the “Eligibility and Process” section to get further information on the next steps.

Engineering and Computer Science students contact the Industrial Practice Program (IPP) office.
