Team Internship Program
The Jacobs School offers its signature Team Internship Program as part of an effort to enhance our student's education through real-world engineering experiences in a multi-disciplinary team setting. Students work on-site with industry partners as a systems-oriented solution team focused on a clearly defined and significant project. Nearly 50 percent of the School's students who go through the internship program are offered jobs by their corporate sponsors. For more information, visit the Team Internship website.
COOPERATIVE EDUCATION (CO-OP)
The Cooperative Education (Co-op) Program is an immersive work experience in which students are employed full-time by a company for up to six months, Summer and Fall Quarters, to supplement education with real-world experiences.
Participating departments include Computer Science & Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, and Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering. For more information, visit the Cooperative Education website.
Industry-Sponsored Design Projects
Several Jacobs School departments offer a capstone industry-sponsored student design project course that allows companies to increase visibility with students and gain access to engineering talent. Projects range from cellular home automation to RF circuit design and wireless sensor networks. For more information, visit Student Design Projects web page.
Disciplines of Engineering Career Fair (DECaF)
The Disciplines of Engineering Career Fair, organized by the Triton Engineering Student Council, draws engineering students seeking both full-time employment and internships. Proceeds from the annual event, held in February of each year, directly support student pre-professional organizations. See http://tesc.ucsd.edu/decaf/.
Jacobs School M.S. and Ph.D. students have their resumes on hand and are available to discuss their research results during an exhibit that features more than 200 research posters. Research Expo is held annually in February in conjunction with the Disciplines of Engineering Career Fair. For more information, visit the Research Expo website.
