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 an undergraduate.
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 Services Office 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
Students seeking internships should have a
resume written by you and critiqued by Career Services before applying for opportunities.
Tufts posts internship opportunities on
