Undergraduate/Graduate Student Design & Engineering Internships

Undergraduate/Graduate Student Design & Engineering Internships

Do you want to enhance your competitiveness? Do you need to incorporate various Advanced Manufacturing Technologies (AMTs) into your processes? Are you worried about your talent pipeline?   

DVIRC and its partners are connecting manufacturers with regional design and engineering programs to help eliminate the challenges of sourcing, recruiting, and hiring talent. We are seeking manufacturers interested in hiring undergraduate/graduate school interns for spring 2020 internship programs.

Design Internship

Computer controlled technologies such as 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC routers, and others are changing the way designers develop products. This internship program will enable small and mid-sized manufacturers (SMMs) to gain access to current and recently graduated design students to connect with a new creative workforce. Design students are being taught creative problem solving, iterative product design through rapid prototyping, creative application and operation of AMTs, and visual communication techniques (including 2D and 3D rendering and traditional orthographic, exploded, and assembly drawings).

Engineering Internship

Gain access to talent skilled in creative problem solving, 3D modeling, rendering, and other visualization techniques. DVIRC and regional engineering schools have designed a program that offers small and mid-sized manufacturers a “turnkey service” for sourcing, recruiting, and selecting interns with skills that will be deployed to work on a company-based technology problem, issue, and/or solution. DVIRC will work with companies to define the project, monitor and provide project management, provide training to the company-based mentor(s), and coach the intern during internship.

Companies that participate in the program receive additional support:

  • Developing project descriptions
  • Identifying candidates
  • Vetting applications
  • Support services — tracking of student’s work, feedback about engagement, and recommendations on best practices — for the intern and the host company
