Internships

Students in the Applied Physics program are required to participate in at least one 10 week internship. Students enroll in S407 generally during the summer semester to receive the necessary credit for an internship. Typically the internships take place following the sophomore or junior year.

The internships provide students with a valuable opportunity to work as a paid employee in private industry, academia or at a national lab. These internships provide real-world experience in the student's chosen area of interest and should be selected carefully so as to enrich the educational experience.

A senior thesis based on the internship experience may culminate this invaluable practical experience. Credit is achieved through S409.

A partial list of possible internship and undergraduate research programs appears below. Students are encouraged to seek any internship experience that is aligned with their interests, even if it does not appear in the list below. Placement is coordinated by the physics department in cooperation with the student.
