Each year, University of Idaho undergraduate students receive internships to work with faculty members on current research projects. Interns received up to $1,000 per academic year in hourly wages. Besides gaining practical engineering experience, interns put classroom theory into practice.
Fall applications can be submitted at any time. Turn them in at NIATT in the Engineering Physics Building, Room 115A. Turn them in as soon as possible Applications require the signature of a sponsoring faculty member who is doing research through NIATT during 2010-11 or planning to apply for grant funding elsewhere.
Many NIATT undergraduate interns have found exciting jobs in industry and government. Their experiences as interns have helped boost their resumes when searching for positions. Others have pursued graduate school after receiving undergrad degrees.
