Eligibility & Prerequisites

This program is open to students who meet the eligibility requirements and who have taken the necessary prerequisites.

Internships

Students will participate in a professional Engineering-related internship for 30 hours per week and have the opportunity to receive transcript notation. Immediately after students enroll in the program there will be a separate internship application that is required in order to participate in the program. Students will receive information about deadlines for the supplementary application from the program provider, CIS Abroad. CIS Abroad’s supplemental application will require a resume, cover letter, and an online application. Internship placement will be based on 2 interviews (including a Skype interview), student interest and experience as highlighted in the supplementary application. During a student’s interview for an internship, the student will get an idea of the types of placements that will be possible for them, including examples of past placements where students of similar backgrounds have been matched without guaranteeing anything specific. Final internship placement will be determined just prior to departure. Click on the engineering internship examples below to get an idea of the types of engineering placements that can be offered.
