College of Science Internship Program

College of Science Internship Program

Internships are a great way to gain skills and experience, learn about a possible future career, and network. Because of the increasing importance of internships, we created the College of Science Internship Program. The CoS Internship Program is designed to connect students and employers for internships and to provide internship support and recognition.

There are a couple of different ways that you can participate in the CoS Internship Program:

  • Track A–  this track allows you to apply to a fully-supported program and select any of the participating employers you would like to be considered for. It includes an orientation and final symposium.
  • Track B– this track allows you to find your own internship and receive College support and recognition for your experience by receiving a special cord at graduation.

For more information on both tracks, finding an internship, earning credit for your internship, and additional resources, see below or contact internships@csme.utah.edu.
