All career-related programs including recruitment and internships are coordinated through Tufts Career Services, located in Dowling Hall. Many career workshops and events are offered throughout the year by Career Services, including Tufts Career and Graduate School Fair (October) and Tufts Engineering Internship Fair (Feb/Mar), in addition to industry and alumni events offered through your department.
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.
Students seeking internships should have a professional
written by you and critiqued by Career Services before applying for opportunities.
Tufts posts internship opportunities on
Tufts Career Connect,
and many other sources are available.
