International Internships in Engineering & Technology

Engineering and technology internships abroad provide aspiring engineers and tech enthusiasts with a transformative opportunity to gain practical experience in a global context. These internships offer hands-on involvement in innovative projects, technological advancements, and engineering challenges within diverse cultural environments. Interns collaborate with international teams, contributing to areas such as software development, hardware design, infrastructure projects, renewable energy solutions, and more. By working on real-world problems in different parts of the world, participants enhance their technical skills, adaptability, and problem-solving abilities, while also gaining a broader perspective on how engineering and technology shape societies and industries on a global scale.

Throughout these internships, individuals may engage in tasks such as prototyping, data analysis, system testing, and project management, all of which contribute to their professional growth and expertise. The exposure to various engineering practices and technological landscapes fosters an open-minded approach to innovation, encouraging interns to explore new methodologies and collaborate across cultural boundaries. Ultimately, engineering and technology internships abroad empower participants to become well-rounded, globally aware engineers and technology professionals, equipped to drive positive change and contribute to the advancement of technology and infrastructure around the world.

Intern Abroad FAQs

Where will I intern?

While some organizations have a list of open internships and place applicants in those positions, we work in the opposite direction. We first learn about you, your interests, goals and experience, and then actively pursue the internship that provides you with experience directly relevant to your future career. 

What will I be doing at my internship?

Our internships are customized to fit each individual’s goals, interests, and skill level. We consider all of these things and then make a placement accordingly. Therefore, we don’t have specific internships “set aside” waiting for people to fill them. We have placed interns in both small and large companies, but due to confidentiality of our host companies and organizations we are not able to provide a list of companies.

If I am accepted into the program, am I guaranteed an internship?

We are confident in our ability to find impactful,  skill-building internships. If you are accepted into our program, we guarantee that we will find you a placement in your first or second choice field.

Do I need to have experience?

We arrange rewarding internship placements for people with all levels of experience. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an expert in your field, a successful experience requires a positive approach and a mind open to learning, growing and strengthening your skills.

Are the internships paid?

We really wish we could offer paid internships, but all of the internships we coordinate are unpaid placements. Paid internships abroad are few and far-between, as they require a different type of visa that is difficult to attain, and they also require sponsorship by the host company, which is quite costly for them. The goal of our program is to provide meaningful, hands-on experience in your specific profession or field of study that will give you a competitive edge in the job market and make you valuable to employers who are globally minded. If you are seeking a placement to help you gain international experience, improve your skills in your field and enhance your resume, our program provides the perfect opportunity.

What companies do you work with?

Our internships are customized to fit each individual’s goals, interests, and skill level. We consider all of these things and then make a placement accordingly. Therefore, we don’t have specific internships “set aside” waiting for people to fill them. We have placed interns in both small and large companies, but due to confidentiality of our host companies and organizations we are not able to provide a list of companies.

Is there a cost to particiate?

We strive to provide immersive, life changing, and professionally rewarding programs for our interns. Our programs are designed as a comprehensive “program” instead of just the internship so that we can provide a full experience for our participants. The program fees we charge include the in-country expenses (housing, insurance, orientation, etc.) and also the dedicated work that goes behind finding a customized, one-of-a-kind, international internship placement.
