MRSD Company Internships
The companies that have so far signed on to interview MRSD students for a potential and voluntary (not required, but highly recommended) internship for the summer are listed below. Note that we are continually expanding this list of companies and areas of activity. We are endeavoring to ensure that students are successful in obtaining an internship, should they choose to exercise the option of an internship during the summer between their 2nd (Spring) and 3rd (Fall) semesters.

Students will be responsible for their own negotiations and legal arrangements with their eventual internship-company, with foreign students also having to ensure their immigration paperwork is obtained in time for their CPT/OPT allowance. The MRSD program is not guaranteeing an internship for each student, but rather facilitating the process, as the internship is optional and voluntary. Students are free to suggest internships with alternate companies, including foreign subsidiaries, but they will require authorization from the MRSD Program Office & Director to ensure proper scope and internship relevance to the MRSD teaching goals.
