One of the Nation's Top Internship Programs

Strategically located in the Telecom Corridor, home of the second-largest high-tech economy in the U.S., the Jonsson School operates one of the largest internship and cooperative education program of its kind in Texas, averaging about 500 student placements a year at employers in Dallas and well beyond.

computer labIn any given year our students complete internships at the likes of Alcatel-Lucent, Cisco Systems, Ericsson Inc., IBM, Intel, NASA, Qualcomm Inc., Raytheon Co., Samsung Telecommunications America and Texas Instruments, not to mention dozens of smaller companies where students learn what it’s like to work at anything from a scrappy start-up to a fast-growing company on the rise.

The school's Cooperative Education, Internship and Curricular Practical Training Programs combine classroom learning with paid work experience. Qualified students are referred to participating employers seeking candidates for career-related, pre-professional work assignments.

Our success is based on the fact that the Dallas area consistently ranks in the top 10 for technology employment. Many of our students are able to participate in internships year-round.
