Program Description

The Master's Industrial Internship Program begins summer term with intensive course and lab work in one of four focus areas:

  • Photovoltaic & Semiconductor Device Processing
  • Polymer Science
  • Molecular Probes & Sensors

The course work and labs are designed to help students become more effective problem-solvers in the industrial environment.

Emphasis is also placed on developing soft skills, such as communication (oral and written), teamwork and leadership—skills critical for a successful career in industry.

Professional skills development is a centerpiece of the program, including resume writing, interviewing and networking.

Students in good academic standing will have the opportunity to interface with our company partners in the hope of securing a 9-month paid internship to fulfill their degree requirements. 

Though internships are not guaranteed, historically close to 98% of our students have successfully completed internships and close to 90% receive regular job offers within three months of finishing their internships.

This unique program is a good fit for students who want to begin a career in industry or hope to gather more data before contemplating a PhD.
