Internships are designed to provide practical work experience outside of the classroom. In chemistry, such internships often include research experiences, building upon skills acquired in the lab and concepts learned in the classroom. Students can receive academic course credit for the program and should expect to learn practical skills as well as facts about a particular career.
Internships can be in:
State and Federal Government Laboratories
Relevant links on funding and some of the available programs are provided below.
Students are encouraged to talk to chemistry faculty to learn more information. In addition, those students who are declared chemistry majors or minors will have access to the chemistry Sakai site where recent internship and job openings are posted.
For examples of projects that our students worked on this past summer, visit our Summer 2012 link.
