Internships are of vital importance to engineering students who
prepare for careers in private industry, consulting, government and
research. Internships bridge the gap between theory and practice,
and provide students with practical, field-based, real-world
experiences during their years of study at Tufts. Nearly 80% of
Tufts engineering students participate in at least one internship as
School of Engineering students are strongly encouraged to
participate in internships during their undergraduate years,
typically during the summer after their sophomore and/or junior
year. Tufts Career Center and the School of Engineering work
collaboratively to identify and develop opportunities for students.
Tufts engineering students have interned at software and electronics
companies, research laboratories, consulting firms, government
agencies, biotechnology giants, and entrepreneurial enterprises.
Students seeking internships should have a
resume written by you and critiqued by the Career Center before
applying for opportunities. Tufts posts internship opportunities on
Jumbo Jobs, and many other sources are available.
