Mechanical Engineering Internships Program – FAQs

Everything you need to know about Mechanical Engineering Internships

If you’re an engineering student or graduate and need industry experience, a Mechanical Engineering Internship will give you 12-weeks of practical experience. Engineering firms prefer to hire graduates who have local experience. So, an internship in the field of mechanical engineering is a good way to enter the market to build your hands-on engineering skills and experience.

Yes! Mechanical Engineering Internships are beneficial for engineering students, and can be done as part-time internships (while studying) or as full-time internships (during semester break). Most engineering degrees require engineering students to complete 12-weeks of mechanical engineering experience to meet the course requirements. So doing an Internship in your third or final year is often necessary.

It is always good to start looking for engineering internships early, and the best time to begin is in the first semester of your studies. This gives you ample amount of time to understand the market and decide on the best time to complete your internship. We suggest completing your mechanical engineering internship in your final year of study, or as soon as you graduate.

Absolutely. Universities usually accept any practical experience in the field as credit, although you may need to provide some specific documents. It is best to speak to your university first to ask about timing and credits.
