Program Description

The KC Graduate Internship Program begins summer term with intensive course and lab work in one of five focus areas, two of which offer an applied physics major:

  • Photovoltaic & Semiconductor Device Processing
  • Optical Materials & Devices

The course work and labs are designed to help students become more effective problem-solvers in industrial, research and national lab environments.

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

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% of those 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 a national lab - and those who hope to gather more data about the wide range of career opportunities available before contemplating a PhD.
