Internships, Graduate, and Undergraduate Projects

Choose your Experience PSI offers a broad range of learning opportunities for undergraduate and Master’s students seeking practical experience in a Research and Development setting. We provide paid internships across a broad range of engineering and scientific disciplines through our developed PSI Internship Program. These internships may be linked to Capstone, Qualifying, or Independent Research projects supporting core degree curricula at the student’s institution. PSI may also provide material, facility, and advisory support for these projects through the academic year.

Learn by Doing

Students participating in these opportunities will work side-by-side with career professionals engaged in hands-on project work supported by our laboratories and engineering facilities, including modern instrumentation, manufacturing equipment, prototyping capabilities, and analysis methods. Many involve fieldwork-evaluating technologies at the prototype stage of development. They will be exposed to the basics of small project management, learn how to establish and achieve project objectives, and have the ability to document and present their project work to their peers and staff professionals.

Set Your Course

We were once you, and for many of us these types of project opportunities were key milestones in deciding on a future career direction. Many of our interns have gone on to graduate school and some become our employees after graduation. Whether you are planning to work after graduation or continue your education, the insights provided by your time with us will help guide that decision.
