Why Intern Abroad?
Consider an internship an investment in your professional and personal future! These global experiences are affordable and immersive opportunities to practice engineering in a global context. An internship can develop your career perspectives and skills, provide you with expert feedback, and add global contacts to your professional network. As you engage in a new culture, you’ll apply academic knowledge and skills in unique, real-world situations and increase your marketability to employers.
