Students in the Agricultural and Biosystems Engineering Department are required to complete an internship during their program. We encourage students to gain experience through multiple internships, but at least one must be taken for credit.
When should students register for internships?
Most internships are completed during the summer after the student has fulfilled at least one year of coursework on campus. Academic progress may impact when the student can complete an internship for credit.
How do students register for internships?
Students must first submit an Internship Agreement Form in order to receive academic credit for an internship. Once the form has been approved, students may register.
Where can students find internship opportunities?
Several resources are available to students seeking internship experience. Both the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences and the Jerome J. Lohr College of Engineering organize career fairs, which attract industries and agencies from across the region each year. Students can also log into Handshake for current listings.
