Research and Internship
AME majors are strongly encouraged to participate in industry internships.
In general, internships cannot be used for academic credit. Students who wish to get credit for an internship must obtain prior approval from the AME undergraduate program chair.
Engineering Practicum Program
The Engineering Practicum program, supervised jointly by the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Gwen M. Greene Career and Internship Center, is a way to gain valuable work experience.
Students in this program take one semester and the preceding or following summer to work at a company. Academic credit is not granted, but the work experience and references obtained are valuable in later job searching.
Graduation is typically delayed by one semester but students with AP credit or summer classes may still graduate within four years.
Additional information, including example programs, is available from the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Sciences office in Lattimore Hall, or from the Gwen M. Greene Career and Internship Center.
AME students also have the opportunity to participate in research, working closely with faculty members as part of their research groups. Available opportunities include summer internships for course credit or for pay, and independent study courses during the academic year.
