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. Forty percent participate in 2 or more internships.
The majority of internships are industry based and completed during the student's 3-month summer break, although part-time internships during the academic term are possible for some students. Students are typically paid for their internships, though unpaid internships and internships for academic credit may also be available. CPT may be granted for International Students based on departmental approval.
