Mechanical Engineering Internships Program – FAQs

If you’re an engineering student or graduate and want to kick-start your career, a Mechanical Engineering Internship will give you 12 weeks of industry experience that employers are looking for.

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 gain hands-on engineering skills and experience.


Mechanical Engineering Internships are beneficial for engineering students, and can be done as part-time internships (while studying) or as full-time internships (during the 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.

We suggest completing your mechanical engineering internship in your final year of study, or as soon as you graduate.

It’s always good to start looking for engineering internships early. This gives you ample time to understand the market and decide on the best time to complete your internship.


Most Mechanical Engineering Internships are considered learning experiences by universities. Once your Mechanical Engineering Internship has been approved, you can gain credit from your university.

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.
