Here are just a few examples of roles our Engineering interns have taken on before:

  1. Chemical Engineer

    Chemical engineers are responsible for creating so many everyday products – just like the computer screen you’re reading this post on. Chemical engineering interns are likely to be involved in conducting laboratory research and testing compounds. At the same time, they will be interacting with experienced engineers, allowing them to grow their professional network, ready for when they have finished their studies. 

  2. Mechanical Engineer

    Mechanical engineering is the most diverse branch of engineering. Interns in this field have been placed with organizations in the manufacturing, power, construction, and healthcare industries. Regardless of the company, as a mechanical engineering intern, you will find yourself assisting with the assembly of machinery and different products.

  3. Electrical Engineer

    Technical skills and an analytical way of thinking are essential attributes for electrical engineers, who are responsible for planning, building, and maintaining electrical systems and products. Electrical engineering interns will carry out investigations into things like cost-effective heating and cooling systems, analyzing extant data and contributing their findings to reports.

  4. Civil Engineer

    Civil engineers are responsible for shaping the world as we see it today. They design, build and look after roads, tunnels, bridges, buildings, and more. A civil engineering internship will give you an insight into every stage of this process, including what it’s like to work on an active construction site. The kinds of tasks you can expect to complete as a civil engineering intern are preparing documents, including site maps and plans; sampling and testing of materials; and surveying site topography.
