Summer Associate Program
Our Summer Associate Program offers technical internships to top graduate and undergraduate engineering students. Even before you graduate, you will get a taste of our innovative, mission-driven culture, while gaining meaningful work experiences and improving lives. In addition to a challenging 10-12 week internship assignment, you'll have opportunities to support the sixth tenant of our Mission through volunteer activities, and experience our dynamic culture through a variety of networking, leadership, and social events.
Depending on business needs, internship opportunities maybe available in the following areas:
- Biomedical Engineering
- Computer Science/Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Materials Science
- Mechanical Engineering
The majority of our internship opportunities are located in Minneapolis, Minnesota – our World Headquarters. This gives you the opportunity to learn about our company and culture, and provides a sense of community with other interns. We may also offer internship assignments in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, and Tennessee. If you're relocating for the summer, we cover your travel expenses to your internship and back to campus, and subsidize your housing costs.
