Internships & Co-ops
Clarkson students repeatedly earn one of the highest rates of internships, co-ops and research positions across the U.S. and around the world.
Why? Two reasons:
- Getting real, hands-on experience — in the classroom, the lab and in one of these positions. It is expected of every Clarkson student, because
- These positions lead to great jobs.
And nearly all Clarkson students (95%) get a job in the field of their choice within a few months of graduation.
Where do Clarkson students get internships, co-ops and research positions?
You name it. All over the country, around the world and in just about every company you’ve heard of and some you haven’t. Just to drop a few names:
Apple, BMW, Bose, Corning, General Dynamics, GE, Google, IBM, Johnson & Johnson, Lockheed Martin, Merrill Lynch, Microsoft, NASA, Pratt & Whitney, Procter & Gamble, Raytheon, SONY, Tesla and Whiting-Turner
Clarkson is a research institution. Research is the pursuit of answers. Internships, co-ops and research positions are — in themselves — research. They shed light on landing the job you want.
The Career Center has the resources to help you find an internship (semester or summer), co-op or research position that fits your interests and career goals.
