Engineering Internship Program
The College’s Student Internship Program pairs motivated, knowledgeable engineering students with local engineering firms who offer practical work experience and job market exposure. Through this highly successful program, students have the opportunity to learn more about their chosen profession, while employers gain access to some of SDSU’s most enthusiastic and motivated students.

Our excellent relationships with many engineering firms in the San Diego region form the basis for this successful program. Participating local firms work with a single university contact to establish and staff intern positions. If your firm is interested in joining our team please see our Flyer for Requesting Interns.
What Hours Do Interns Work?
When classes are in session, we ask employers to provide flexible work schedules, enabling interns to work up to 20 hours per week while still attending classes on campus. During winter and summer breaks, full-time employment is often an option.
Are Internships Paid?
Students are compensated from $10-$20 per hour, depending upon their skills and academic units completed. This allows students to help pay for their educational expenses while learning practical job skills before they graduate.
