Opportunities for Engineering Students

The Industrial Assessment Centers at Boise State and University of Idaho provide meaningful paid internship opportunities for well-qualified students. We have a team of 6-10 students at each site carrying out assessments at regional manufacturers.  Team members get a chance to apply their engineering skills in a real-world environment while learning about dozens of manufacturing technologies and the energy infrastructure that supports them.

Here’s what one of our recent graduates had to say about the experience:

I am sure I would not be where I am today without that background and knowledge attained from the IAC and I would strongly encourage you to keep the program up and running as well as encourage students to participate. Not only was the IAC instrumental in getting to where I am today, but your referral was important and I can’t thank you enough. Please continue to the good work!”Davis Gumbo, BSME 2015

We bring in new interns on a rolling basis, watch for the position advertised on the campus career center web site.
