Internships, Scholarships & Research Opportunities

Internship Opportunities

Internships are an important component of our undergraduate program experience. A few of the recent internships involving our students have been funded by government agencies. A significant number of our undergraduates have been successful getting internships with private groups.  Be sure to discuss this with your advisor.

Suggestions for finding an internship:

1) Check out the links below to determine whether they have any internships available that align with your interests.

2) Look at the internship opportunities listed on our Job & Opportunities Board.

3) Research any company you're interested in to see if they have open internship opportunities.

4) Conduct an online search using key phrases based on your interests, such as "petroleum internship," "mining internship," etc.
