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 facilitated program and select any of the participating employers you would like to be considered for all in one application. It includes an orientation, a final symposium, and assistance throughout your internship experience.
  • Track B– this track allows you to find your own internship, but still be a part of the CoS Internship Community. There are different ways to engage, so you can choose how much support you need and decide how much involvement with the program works best for you.

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.
