Boeing, NASA, Rödl & Partner USA- These are just a few of the companies in which students have interned during their undergraduate study. These roles give a unique view into prospective careers that help students identify the areas in which they can envision themselves and put their education into action. Internships are also beneficial as they open the door to networking opportunities and give students an advantage in the job market upon graduation.
