Invest in Your Future
with Ogden College Internship Opportunities
At Ogden College of Science and Engineering, we strive to provide our students with quality internships across a variety of industries. Internships give you real-world experience and allow you to connect to people within the industry, giving you the opportunity to network and have a potential pool of employers.
The goal is to merge what you learn in the classroom with a hands-on experience in your field of study. Internships offer the ability to see your field of study from a different light and also (in most majors) get course credit. Having the hands-on knowledge of your field of study allows you to be better prepared once you hit the workforce. When you gain real-world skills, employers generally take that into consideration when reviewing you as a candidate.
OCSE is transitioning all internship and co-op postings to Handshake. Within Handshake students can build a profile and search for opportunities that meet their skill set and qualifications. Students are also able to search by geographic location.
For employers, Handshake is a free platform to use. Companies develop an internship posting and post it on Handshake. Once the position is approved, the OCSE Internship Coordinator will send it out to students. Students can apply using the Handshake platform or an external site of your choice.
