Student interns are part of an educational process that goes beyond applying technical expertise. They learn skills, attributes, and qualities necessary to enable them to practice engineering in a professional manner. This learning opportunity distinguishes a Rose-Hulman education and our student interns from other engineering students.

Our interns learn to approach real-world design problems, to dissect them, apply engineering skills, and find an innovative solution for the client project. Interns also learn to communicate project solutions to technical and non-technical professionals.

If you are interested in gaining real-world engineering expertise as a student intern, visit our booth at the next Rose-Hulman career fair, or submit your resume to Brian Dougherty.

Educational advantage

Rose-Hulman Ventures interns work professionally prior to graduation, but in conjunction with their academic studies. Interns gain the skills and experience to launch their careers and are well prepared for any engineering challenge. Seniors report that this experience makes a difference between an offer for an entry-level engineering position and an offer for a higher-level position with more responsibility and compensation. What our interns are saying:

"The Rose-Hulman Ventures experience has influenced my career decision. After graduation, I plan to continue working on FAST Diagnostics at Ventures and pursue a topic that has come up during the project for a master's thesis. When I finally enter the job market, this project will put me ahead of other candidates."-- Andrew Boneff, optical engineering
"Rose-Hulman Ventures? Do it! Especially, if you are a freshman. There is so much on-the-job learning and experience, and it is a paid engineering position that will open a lot of doors for future internships and job opportunities."-- Molly Richardson, civil engineering major, software engineering minor
"At Rose-Hulman Ventures, don't expect to have the answers handed to you every time you need them. You will ultimately be the engineer who solves the problems that arise, so be expecting them." - Lucas Weir, Mechanical Engineering


Projects begin at various times and are not limited by an academic calendar. Once the project requirements are defined, agreements signed, and student interns are hired, the project proceeds.
