Career Opportunities
Co-op Internship

The optional MBP Industrial Internship provides a valuable opportunity for students to work in the industry for two quarters (6 months). Internship placement is not guaranteed and students are ultimately responsible for securing their internship positions. However, the MBP identifies, creates, and disseminates internship leads and helps students research companies, prepare resumes, and train for interviews. Typically, the number of the leads generated by the program exceeds the number of the students looking for an internship.
