          Jobs / Internships



          Making sure Edinboro University students are fully prepared for the professional world is a priority for the University, as the many fantastic internship opportunities available to Physics and Technology Department students and notable career achievements of alumni continue to prove.

          Internships  

          Hands-on, real-world experience is hard to beat. Edinboro University recognizes that experiential learning is a valuable tool in helping students make career decisions and in complementing formal classroom learning. 

          Providing excellent internship opportunities is a priority for the University, and stories of student success in the workplace have been overwhelming. Edinboro students have interned at the Smithsonian Institution, Channellock Industries, General Electric, Meadville Forging Company, C & J Industries, Rehrig Pacific Company, Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and many more locations. In addition, the department has a unique arrangement with Penn State’s prestigious Engineering Science and Mechanics Department. Edinboro physics majors are eligible for paid summer internships and graduate school assistantships.

          While some Edinboro University majors require an internship, cooperative education, student teaching or research experience, many students elect to pursue an internship to augment their educational portfolio. Every major has one or more designated internship directors to assist students with identifying opportunities and coordinating credits. 

          Students who are interested in internship experiences are encouraged to contact the Physics and Technology Department internship coordinator, or visit the Center for Career Development’s internship webpages for more information.
