A requirement of the AMS program is completing AMS 4950 Professional Internship Senior Experience. In an internship, you gain work experience under the guidance of an industry professional within the workplace. Students must complete (3) credit hours of internship, which equates to 135 work hours throughout the semester. The internship must be relevant to your selected AMS concentration. Internship students are required to prepare weekly internship reports and complete a self-evaluation survey and a reflective paper at the completion of the internship.
The Professional Internship Senior Experience gives you the invaluable opportunity to learn what it’s like to work in a multidisciplinary manufacturing environment. Additionally, you will begin to establish critical industry contacts and build your professional network.

AMS 4950 Professional Internship Senior Experience is MANDATORY for all AMS students in order to satisfy graduation requirements. Students with Junior or Senior status may select this course.
AMS majors must complete a minimum of 3 credit hours of AMS 4950 Professional Internship.
1 credit hour = 45 work hours
2 credit hours = 90 work hours

You should start looking for an internship 6-9 months prior to when you want to start the internship.
Large companies such as Lockheed Martin Space and United Launch Alliance have very formal internship programs. Internships are posted in Career Link in September for summer internships.
Other companies post internships the semester before the internship will start. Ball Aerospace posts internships at the start of the spring semester for summer internships.
Start researching companies you may want to work for. Go to the company websites and see what the company does. Look at the job openings to see the types of positions available and skills and education needed for those positions. See if the company has an internship program and what the process/timeline is. Make a list of companies you would like to intern at.
Apply for internships either on Career Link or at the company website. Apply for all internships that interest you.
